Rich tributes to Asom Ratna

Dr Bhupen Hazarika's multi faceted personality and his outstandina contribution came up for a touching discourse as Assam observed the second death anniversary across the state on Tuesday.           Thousands of people thronged the Gauhati University campus to pay tribute to Dr Hazarika where the legendary music maestro was cremated 2 years back.     Cultural troupes performed Bhupendra sangeet apart from religious functions organised by the goverment. Local residents in Nijorapar observed the death anniversary with a day cultural function.           Aasu lit up 10000 earthen lamps in Dighalipukhuri in the evening.
