Legendary singer from Assam Dr. Bhupen Hazarika has been featured in 65th Republic Day celebrations at Rajpath as tableau from Assam yesterday. Dr. Hazarika well known as lyricist, musician, singer, writer, poet and film-maker passed away in 2011.
The tableau in the front featured Dr. Hazarika playing the harmonium. Another bust of his sitting on a boat sailing along the Ganges was placed in the rear. Quite fittingly; the song played in the background was Dr. Hazarika’s famous ‘Ganga’. As the voice from the “Bard of Brahmaputra” posed a few questions to Ganga, what flowed were memories from a melodious past.
