    Hey friends,

    I thought, why not start a discussion here on what is happening in your home state Assam. Be the first to share a news and start a discussion.

    Keep Posting!

    Here I post the first post, which is about hope and goodwill for Assam.
    What should the administration and the people do to encourage normalcy through sports?

    That's great news Nabanita! We all wish Assam will return to normalcy, I also believe people should also stand up for their right to live peacefully and what better way than SPORTS to enliven the spirit. Just recall how the T20 world cup win for Pakistan brought smile and cheers in the faces of the terror torn state of Pakistan. And, as far as I know Assamese are by far peace lovers.

    Good Luck to all :thumbsup

    Sonia

    Floods wreak havoc in Assam

    Every year the floods in Assam leave a trail of destruction, washing away villages, submerging paddy fields, drowning livestock and causing loss of human life and property. And 2009 has nothing different in store for the people of Assam.

    Well, here is some good news for you all. The glorious history of Assamese film industry will now be preserved for posterity and thrown open to the public at a film museum proposed to be set up in Guwahati.The cultural affairs department has embarked on a project to set up a museum and archive of Assamese films at Jonaki — a multipurpose cultural complex — at Panjabari.

    Dispur has taken up the project to conserve <st1:country-region w:st="on"><st1:place w:st="on">Assam</st1:place></st1:country-region>’s cinematic history and heritage, which are in danger of being lost forever. The film museum and archive will be set up and maintained by the Assam State Film (Finance and Development) Corporation Limited. This way, many iconic Assamese films, threatened with extinction for want of scientific efforts to preserve the prints, could be saved.

It could also be a place of tourist interest where one would be enlightened on the history of Assamese films.

    Don't you think this will be great for us?

    Re: Film Museum for Assamese Movies

    Mayuri, this is indeed a good news for Assamese movies and its preservation. Such a museum will offer a heritage to the forthcoming generations about our rich culture and the predominance of Assamese directors and films in national film history.

    Who can forget those unforgettable films by Jahnu Barua and Bhupen Hazarika's soulful music that still are fresh in our memories and will inspire more youngsters from our state to achieve that height of cinematic glory.
