This issue is dedicated to Late Dipali Borthakur, also known as the 'Nightingale of Assam'. The singer not only possessed the gift of melodious voice but also broke stereotypes of women artistes by being one of the first female singers in those times. She was conferred the Padmashri for her valuable contribution to Assamese and Indian music.
This editorial also wishes all the readers of Guwahatian a happy new year ahead, and greetings of the Bhogali Bihu. With the talks on Citizenship Amendment Bill, the magazine urges the readers not to indulge in violent altercations with own countrymen, and take up the matter with unity.
This New Year, take a pledge to keep your streets clean and reuse plastic and paper. Read good books and contribute to your society and country, be it through little means.
