|Collection of short stories released|
GUWAHATI, Nov 14 - Sukula Meghar Alingan, a collection of short stories by late Dhirendranath Talukdar, founder president of Brihattar Panjabari Sahitya Sabha, was formally released at a function at the Guwahati Press Club today.
Significantly, the occasion also coincided with Talukdar’s adyashraddha. A few days before his death, Talukdar had told his wife to go ahead with the book release function on the scheduled date even in the event of his death. His adyashraddha will be solemnised tomorrow.
Senior journalist DN Chakravartty, in his address on the occasion, dwelt on the qualities of head and heart of Talukdar and termed the book a quality volume. “It is a book with an ISBN no, and not many books have it,” he said.
Litterateur Bijoy Krishna Deva Sarma presided over the function, which was attended, among others, by Khanindra Choudhury. The book has been published by Insight Publisher.
