Remembering Bhupen Hazarika on 8th death anniv
Three-day event starts at BSA today

Today marks the 8th death anniversary of Bhupen Hazarika, who was a famous lyricist, musician, singer, poet and filmmaker of the subcontinent.

On the occasion, Bangladesh Shilpakala Academy (BSA) and Byatikram MASDO, a cultural organisation of Assam, are jointly organising a three-day event titled ‘Mora Jatri Eki Taronir’ on the BSA premises from today. The event will feature discussion, song and dance show.

On the opening day, a cultural programme will be presented by the artistes of Bangladesh and India at the National Music and Dance Centre auditorium of BSA at 6:30pm.

Tomorrow at 6:30pm, BSA and Asam Sahitya Sabha, a pioneer literary organisation of Assam, are jointly organising discussion, song, dance and theatre show at the National Theatre Hall of BSA.

On the concluding day on November 7, BSA and Asam Sahitya Sabha will jointly organise a show of an Asam play titled ‘Kamala Kuyarir Sadhu’ at 7pm at the National Theatre Hall. Presented by Asam Kalatirtha and SB Movies, the theatre production is written, produced and directed by Dr Paramananda based on Kamalarani’s story.

Bhupen Hazarika’s songs, written and sung mainly in the Assamese language by himself, are marked by humanity and universal brotherhood and have been translated and sung in many languages, most notably in Bengali and Hindi. His songs, based on the themes of communal amity, universal justice and empathy, have become popular among the people of Assam, besides West Bengal and Bangladesh.

He is also acknowledged to have introduced the culture and folk music of Assam and Northeast India to Hindi cinema at the national level. He received the National Film Award for Best Music Direction in 1975.  

He died on November 5, 2011.
