Roopkar Awards Presented

Roopkar Awards, instituted in the memory of distinguished cine-journalist and litterateur Pabitra Kumar Deka, was presented to renowned filmmaker Jahnu and noted actor Arun Nath for the years 2019 and 2020 respectively, in a low-key function held at the premises of the Pabitra Kumar Deka Archive, on January 5. The awards, given away biennially, were presented by the state’s eminent journalist and author Anuradha Sharma Pujari.

On the occasion, Pabitra Kumar Deka’s much anticipated book, written in his typical lucid yet humourous style – ‘Mur Satya Anno Sansthanor Kahini’ was also released by Anuradha Sharma Pujari. In her keynote speech, Pujari spoke about his significant contributions to Assamese literature, especially in the genre of satirical writings. Jahnu Barua and Arun Nath too, regaled the attendees with anecdotes from their experiences with Deka and their respective journeys in the field of culture.

The programme, anchored by cine-journalist Bidyut Bhuyan, went off wonderfully, and was graced by noted film and media personalities, including Sanjeev Hazorika, Hemanta Kumar Das, Mrinal Das, Rana Deka, Mala Mahanta, Prasant Saikia, Nandan Deka, etc.
