Adoor to be honoured with Bhupen Hazarika International award

Dadasaheb Phalke award winning filmmaker Adoor Gopalakrishnan will be conferred the prestigious 'Biswaratna Dr Bhupen Hazarika International Solidarity Award' for 2015.

Gopalakrishnan, also a Padma Vibhushan awardee, has been selected for the award by a committee of eminent personalities for his all-round contribution to the field of filmmaking, ASS Vice-President Parmananda Rajbongshi said here today. Read More

Assam renews plea for Bharat Ratna to Bhupen Hazarika on 3rd death anniversary

Even as Assam paid rich tributes to Bhupen Hazarika on his third death anniversary today, the Assam government renewed its plea for a Bharat Ratna to the legendary singer, musician, poet and filmmaker, with chief minister Tarun Gogoi saying a fresh proposal has been sent to the Centre in this regard.
“Bhupen Hazarika deserved a Bharat Ratna long ago. We have been pressing the Centre for conferring the highest award on him for several years. We have sent a fresh proposal again,” Chief Minister Gogoi said during a function at the site where Hazarika was cremated three years ago. The Assam State Assembly had earlier passed a resolution twice requesting the Centre to confer Bharat Ratna on him. Hazarika was conferred the Padma Vibhushan posthumously in 2012.
Gogoi however could not satisfy Hazarika’s fans and admirers on why the construction of a befitting memorial to the most well-known Assamese had not taken off despite several deadlines. The state government, which had earmarked Rs 10 crore for the Hazarika memorial in early 2013 had set November 2014 as the deadline for completion of the memorial. In reality, however not even five per cent work has been completed. Read More
