Sukapha Diwas to be celebrated in Delhi

By Staff Reporter

GUWAHATI, Nov 18 - Sukapha Diwas or Assam Diwas, commemorating the advent of the great Ahom ruler Chaolung Sukapha, which is celebrated on December 2 every year, would be celebrated in the national capital this year by the Ahom Sena with a day-long programme at the Constitution Club of India in New Delhi on December 2.

The Sukapha Diwas is celebrated to highlight the life and deeds of the first Ahom King and his role in uniting the various tribes and ethnic groups in this part of the country as well as constructing a greater Assamese society.

�The day holds special significance for the Assamese people as it is a time to reflect on our glorious past, as well as understand the power of unity among our people, which has been taught by the Ahom King Sukapha. Today, when the Assamese society is divided on several grounds, it is the time to go back to our roots and re-learn our lessons,� said Ankuran Phukan, head of the central committee.

Office-bearers of the organisation further added that the reason to celebrate the day in New Delhi is to let people from other parts of the country know about the legendary ruler.
