By Staff Reporter

GUWAHATI, Nov 5 � A sense of shock and grief gripped Guwahatians along with the rest of the State as the news of music icon Dr Bhupen Hazarika�s death spread like wild fire.

While fans � young and old alike � thronged Dr Hazarika�s residence at Nizarapar in large numbers to express their condolences to the bereaved family members, others remained glued to the television sets to get updates on what was happening in Mumbai, where the legend breathed his last.

Music stores all over the capital city played Dr Hazarika�s music till late evening as a mark of respect to the legendary artiste.

As the day progressed, the otherwise busy city roads, especially the market areas, began to wear a deserted look.

Condolence meetings were held in various areas of the city, including Dighalipukhuripaar, which were participated by a large number of people coming from a cross section of the society.

Among the first to visit Dr Hazarika�s residence were his sister Sudakshina Sarma, MLA Captain (rtd) Robin Bordoloi and singer Moushumi Saharia and Malabika Bora.

Samar Hazarika, singer and younger brother of Dr Hazarika, who was present at the Nizarapar residence, said, �I got a call from one of my brothers in Shillong around 2 pm who inquired about Bhpuen-da�s health. I got the confirmation later in the evening. �

�Bhupen da�s creations would always keep him immortal,� Samar Hazarika added.

An ardent fan of Dr Hazarika, Bikash Sarma expressed his grief saying, �Assam has lost its identity in the global milieu and the Assamese people their guardian. There will be no second Bhupen Hazarika again.�

Naurabh Parashar, another Bhupen Hazarika fan, termed Dr Hazarika�s death as the greatest loss ever for Assam.

�The kind of genius he was, one must admit that he did not get what he deserved from those at the helm of affairs in New Delhi. Bhupen da, however, always remained unmoved by materialistic recognition which made a larger-than-life personality,� Nuarabh said.
