Tabla player Bibekananda Bhattacharya passes away

Bibekananda Bhattacharya, an eminent tabla player, passed away at his Nagaon, Amolapatty residence at around 8 am on September 28. Bhattacharya, who was immensely popular for his immeasurable skill on tabla playing in the cultural field of not only in his home state but also in other parts of the country, was 77 at the time of death. He was suffering from renal complications for some time and was undergoing treatment at the GMCH till September 26. It is interesting that neither the health minister nor the cultural minister of Assam paid a visit to him while this great personality was on hospital bed.

His death has been deeply mourned by the people of Nagaon and his well-wishers at large.
