Dr Bhupen Hazarika is still living in the hearts of millions of people across the north east if the rich tributes paid to the maestro on Monday is any indication.


The Asom Ratna was remembered in the state on his first death anniversary with all-religion prayers, cultural shows and processions.


From early in the morning his evergreen songs started filling the air. Chief Minister Tarun Gogoi led the state to pay tribute to the legendary musician in several functions after he arrived in Guwahati from Delhi.
Dr Hazarika’s family members organised a day-long event at their Nizarapar residence. The main function took place at Jalukbari. The All Assam Students' Union held lit 10,000 earthen lamps at the peace park at Dighali Pukhuri in his memory. This is apart from another solemn function at Latasil playground where a human chain was formed.
