Raha: The State Forest Minister Rokibull Hussain has at last shown interest to set up the state's first Record Room in Nagaon where all officials and non-officials records of Nagaon district will be preserved in a scientific way. In a recent meeting held at Nagaon Circuit House under the presidentship of Rokibull
Hussain, it has been decided to complete the preservation works within one year. The meeting was attended by the eminent litterateur-journalist Homen Borgohain, Historian Dr Rajen Saikia, scholar Dr Naren Kalita and
the D C of Nagaon Dr J Balaji besides the local citizens and other officials from the administrative section. Later, in a talk with the reporters litterateur-journalist Homen Borgohain said that Nagaon can be proud of this Yeoman's Service.

A committee was formed for the said purpose having Homen Borgohain as Chief Advisor, Rokibull Hussain as President, Dr J Balaji as Executive President and ADC of Nagaon P K Rajkhowa as member. The other members of the committee are-Dr Rajen Saikia,Dr Naren kalita,Sahaja Nanda Ujah,Dr Sarat Borkataky, Dr Partha Sarathi Baruah, ADC Rafique Ali and Nagaon district Public Relation Officer Rajib Saikia.
It should be mentioned here that many valuable documents, apart from the official ones, which have the signatures of the doyens of Assamese literature like Gunabhi Ram Baruah, Anamda Ram Dhekiyal Phukan, Surya Kumar Bhuyan, Bali Narayan Baruah and so on have been lying in a poor
condition in the Deputy Commissioner's Record Room for a log time.
Assam has a long history of history writing and preservation of manuscripts and this innate sense of history mingled with the latest scientific discovery should obviously enrich the future generations of Assam about the glorious past of Assam's History.
