BM literary bodies recall Bhattacharyya

Post Bureau GUWAHATI, June 5 The Nikhil Bishnupriya Manipuri Sahitya Parishad (NBMSP) and the Bishnupriya Manipuri Writers’ Forum (BMWF) have separately condoled the demise of eminent poet Hiren Bhattacharyya, fondly called as Hiruda. 

In a condolence meeting at Silchar with its Assam state committee president Jyoti Prakash Sinha in the chair on Thursday, the NBMSP held a detailed discussion on the works of the Sugandhi Pokhila-repute poet, also known as the ‘poet of love and sunshine’. 

The parishad has also held such a meeting at Jorhat with its state committee vice-president Simu Sinha in the chair. Meanwhile, BMWF president Dils Lakshmindra told this reporter over telephone that the demise of Bhattacharyya has created a void in the Northeast literature as a whole, and it will be very difficult for the posterity to fill. He also said that the writers’ forum would include a programme on poet Bhattacharyya in a function slated to be held in the first week of August this year in memory of Pocha Ojha, an epoch-maker in the field of Bishnupriya Manipuri rasakirtan.
