Asom Sahitya Sabha proposes varsity to study art and literature

The Asom Sahitya Sabha has proposed to set up a full fledge varsity in the city to promote studies and research on art, literature and culture not only of the north eastern region but of the entire country.Addressing a press conference in the city’s Bhagwati Prasad Baruah Hall on Sunday, Sabha president Kanak Sen Deka said the varsity would be set up at its huge 50 bigha plot beside the Express Highway. Deka said the university will accord top priority on the archaeological studies on the various ethnic groups in the north eastern region.

Deka said said the proposed varsity will provide the scholars across the world with an opportunity to exchange their views on language, art and literature. He further informed that the Sabha is dispatching a delegation of noted scholars and litterateurs to England on July 15 to look for fund from the Assamese people living in the western country. Also, the delegation will unveil Dr Bhupan Hazarika’s much hyped Asomiya Bhasa Jogot Sabhaloi Jabo programme in England during the trip.

Dr Bhupan Hazarika’s much hyped 'Asomiya Bhasa Jogot Sabhaloi Jabo'....but we don't even find its mention in when registering in any Online community....ask Netizens. When one is asked about 'Languages known' in Orkut, etc., there is no mention of Asamese (Asomiya). As such, Assamese knowing people cannot mention the language out there. The number of speakers are shown to be 1 crore or 10 million in the Manorama Year Book. In that case, it should appear in those websites. Its time we give the matter a thought...both the RA (Resident Asamese) as well as the NRA (non-Resident Asamese).
