9/11 - a day when a sad and a disheartening act of cowardliness by the terrorists shook the entire world, a day which still refresh our memory at the pity sights of those who lost that lives and also of those who lost there near and dear ones just at a blink of an eye, a day which witnessed almost everything, from discouragement to anger and from sorrow to humanity. It has been nine long years now but still we feel a sense of dismay when we remember that tragedy.
Thus, this year, the members of the Rotaract Club of Gauhati West, paid tribute for the peace of the eternal soul of the victims of 9/11 attack on New York.
