I've been trying to write a tribute for Bhupen Hazarika... I guess I am still in mourning, like every Assamese person is. And, I am proud to be an Assamese after how the people of Assam came to the street to bid him goodbye in his final journey.
Bhupen Mama, you are gone, but not forgotten.
My mother called on the day of his last rite, how the streets of Guwahati was filled with people. It was unprecedented. Only Bhupen Hazarika could demand such a reaction, and he did.
