Dr. Bhupen Hazarika - a Tribute by Anurag Kalita

Dr. Bhupen Hazarika was a true genius. For the Assamese generations who were born after the disturbing years Assam went through, Dr. Hazarika's songs and compositions were the medium to know and live the past years. His compositions were created across time and reflected the Assam from the days as a land of gaiety and harvests, then to the Assam in midst of Language Revolution and Assam Agitation to present day post-insurgency hit and resurgent Assam. He had immaculately captured the pain and agony of the masses and yet managed to provide hope and happiness. The master had made the word Assamese a throbbing living culture through his creations. The legendary baritone will always remain irreplaceable and will continue to hum in the heart of every music lover.
