GUWAHATI, Jan 21 � AssamAdda, a bilingual social networking platform for people from Assam, and for the people who are from the region but away from the homeland, and also for those who connect their roots to the region, was launched recently.
�In this age of globalization, we have many people from Assam who are scattered across the globe, and are rarely connected to each other. There are various social media websites that offer an opportunity to connect with long lost friends, but it is not easy to find and join each and every group/forum/website to find out where friends from Assam are. AssamAdda is the single platform where we can expect all the people are from Assam, or friends of Assam, sharing their views, news, and opinions,� Gautom Das, one of the brains behind the venture, said.
The aim of AssamAdda is to create a platform for all the people from Assam without prejudice.
�Many people from the region are achievers in their own fields, but most of them are not known to many others. Then, if someone from Assam travels to a foreign country, viz., Austria, and if he/she knows that there is someone from the region in that country, they may like to share a cup of tea and have a small adda. This forum can also help people sharing and gaining information about education, job, entertainment and other area across the globe,� Das said.
