Public felicitation to Asom Ratna Dr Hazarika

It was a sea of humanity as thousands of people across the north eastern states gathered at the Latasheel Palyground on Sunday to felicitate the noted maestro and film maker Dr Bhupen Hazarika at function organized by All Assam Students Union.

The function began with the felicitation to the living legend by several organizations from the region and outside. This was followed a thrilling cultural show that made Dr Hazarika spell bound. Dr Hazarika in his short but illuminating speech thanked the gathering and the organizers and hummed a few of his evergreen lyrics.

Later he was felicitated by a band of 671 boys boys and girls with bihu sings in their lips. They sang and danced and made the Latasheel playground a throbbing where Asom Ratna joined them.

On Saturday, Dr Hazarika unveiled his own statue made of glass fibre beside the historic Dihgalipukhuri in presence of thousands of his fans at the initiative of AASU.
