By Staff reporter

GUWAHATI, Jan 8 � The Kamrup Mahanagar Zila Sahitya Sabha will organise three lectures on the �Growth and development of Assamese literature during the six decades since freedom�. The lectures will cover three different stages spanning two decades each from 1950 to 2010.

This decision was taken at the steering committee meet of the Sabha on Friday held under the presidentship of senior journalist DN Chakravartty.

The Sabha, by another resolution, also decided to organise seven lectures and seminars on socio-economic advancement of different ethnic communities of the State. The seminars and lectures will cover the socio-economic lives of the tea garden communities, Rabhas, Tiwas, Bodos and the Bengali-speaking people.

The lectures will also include evolution and assimilation of the Nepali community domiciled in Assam and throw new light on the socio-cultural assimilation of the people living in the char (river sand bar) areas. A special general meeting will be held in August to confer the �Prajna� title on a distinguished literary figure of undivided Kamrup district.

Dimbeswar Pathak, secretary of the Sabha, read out the quarterly report and Hemen Talukdar, vice president, informed the members about the action calendar of the Asam Sahitya Sabha. Pabitra Kalita, Prafulla Kumar Mahanta and Uttam Baruah took part in the discussion.

The Sabha has called upon the different sakha (branch) sabhas to organise at least one function every month. A convention of the literary and journalist pensioners will also be held in March.
