Obituary: Rajani Deka

As flies to the wanton boys
We are to the gods
They can kill us for sports

William Shakespear

A painful news spread like wildfire in the entire area of Dhupguri in Udalguri district on Friday. Rajani Deka, an inhabitant of Dhupguri in Paneri passed away at 75 leaving a pall of gloom in the entire locality. As a fourth grade employee of Tangla Higher Secondary School, his role is small but his contribution is immense which is why, he would be remembered as a social worker in his area. His leadership quality made him the Vice–President of Nashanshali Koch Rajbanshi Sanmilan and a member of Uttar Mangaldai Anchalik Koch Sanmilan.

Deka was also involved in many other organizations in his area. He spared no pain to weed out superstition that has been crippling the socio cultural life of the are in the form of child-marriage, witchery and what not. Nashanshali Koch Rajbanshi Students Union condoled his untimely death. May his soul rest in peace.
