In most of the naamghars, good numbers of young generation people were also seen among the devotees.
The employees and management of the Assam Tribune Group of Publications also observed the day on the Tribune premises. As part of the celebration, Nagara Naam was performed by invited troupes in the evening. The Tribune campus was also illuminated with earthen lamps on the auspicious occasion.
