Dr. Bhupen Hazarika - a Tribute by Abe Thomas

Sometime in the late 1940s, legendary American singer-composer Paul Robeson walked into a Columbia University classroom with a guitar in his hands and asked his students, "What is this?" It was obvious to everyone that it was a guitar and so they kept quiet. One person stood up and said, "Sir, this is a musical instrument that can change society." That person was Bhupen Hazarika.
