Dr. Bhupen Hazarika - a Tribute by Pranab Kumar Chakravarty

Bhupenda with a Catholic outlook had mastered knowledge about almost all the disciplines of film making besides being a singer, lyricist, writer, poet and journalist. I wonder who had inspired him to go to all the way to USA with a post graduate degree in pol science from BHU and obtain PhD in mass communication with distinction from Columbia University in 1952 when mass communication in India and elsewhere was at its infancy.
