PM condoles Raisom�s death

By Spl correspondent

NEW DELHI, Nov 29 � Prime Minister Dr Manmohan Singh has condoled the demise of noted author Indira Goswami.

In a condolence message to the litterateur�s brother Satyabrata Goswami, the Prime Minister described her as one of the most influential writers and commentators in Assamese.

�I was deeply saddened to learn of the passing away of Goswami, popularly known as Mamoni. She was undoubtedly one of the most influential writers and commentators in Assamese in recent times. Her literary work earned her many awards including the Jnanpith Award. Her widely acclaimed writings especially Nilkanthi Broja and The Moth Eaten Howdah of a Tusker (Datal Hatir Uyne Khowa Haoda) have universal appeal and show a sensitive depiction of the trauma of widowhood.

Goswami played an important role in bringing peace to the State of Assam by promoting discussion and reconciliation among the parties.

�Goswami`s death will be mourned widely across our country by the admirers of her literary and social work. I convey my sincere condolences to you and other members of her family and her many friends and well-wishers,� the Prime Minister said.

Condoling the passing away of Goswami, Minister for Development of North Eastern Region (DoNER) Paban Singh Ghatowar said Goswami�s demise would leave a void that would be hard to fill. �Her death is not only a loss to the literary world but to the entire State of Assam,� he said.
