GUWAHATI: Music and emotions become inseparable when the person concerned is Bhupen Hazarika. Everytime the maestro gets honoured for his achievements, his eyes become moist. And Tuesday was no exception.

As the legend started crooning "mur gaan howk bahu aasthahinotar biporite ek govir aasthar gaan" during the inauguration of a museum named after him at the Shankardev Kalashetra here, tears started rolling down his cheeks as smoothly as his music flows. "I'm very happy today. I have spent a joyful day in the middle of pains. I would like to thank all those people who put in so much effort to make the museum," said Hazarika.

CM Tarun Gogoi, who inaugurated the museum, said, "It's a memorable day in the history of Assam. It's a way of thanking Bhupen dada for what he has contributed to enrich the culture of the region. The museum will represent his memories for ever." He added, " His works teach us the lesson of humanity. I'm proud he was born in Assam."

"The Bhupen Hazarika Cultural Museum will house all the awards the mastero got from across the world besides the ones he got within the state. Moreover, it will have some of his personal belongings," said Kalashetra chairman Chabin Rajkhowa. Filmmaker Kalpana Lajmi, who is with Hazarika for several decades, said the love of people for the maestro was amazing.
