Previously, a congregation gathered at Lambeth Pier – opposite the Houses of Parliament – to pay respects to the great soul. The box containing the ashes was held up for all to view by Dr Karuna Sagar Das, while others offered flowers, lit incense sticks or stood with hands joined in veneration.

Bhupen Hazarika | ভূপেন হাজৰিকা | 08 Sep 1926 – 05 Nov 2011.
05 November, 2011. The JFA joins Assam and the world in mourning the demise of the great Dr Bhupen Hazarika. Bhupenda – as he was affectionately known in Assam – shaped the baseline for powerful modern music in Assam and set about a standard where meaningfulness and depth greatly mattered. Click the image to view a presentation from Enazoree Films prepared by Bublee Goswami, co-founder of the JFA. The loss of Dr Hazarika is irreplaceable and marks the end of an era of modern music whose simplicity had the amazing power of being able to rapidly move the masses.
Rest In Peace, Bhupenda. Generations to come will continue to be enriched by the legacy of your music. In deep reverence, from everyone at The JFA.

Caring for the old
Taking care of the elderly not only takes goodwill, but requires appropriate skills as well. Keeping this in mind, Just For Assam (JFA), an international working group, is embarking on a plan to sponsor career training courses for aspiring women who want a career specialising in care of the elderly.
Just over a year old, the JFA has already notched up a few laurels on its post. When the JFA arose as a working group in November 2008, its founding members set themselves a mission called Project 30th October. This was to be a rehabilitation programme for survivors of the devastating terrorist bombs that had ripped Assam apart the previous month.
The JFA has campaigned to raise funds for the cause and has since managed to make a significant difference in the lives of many stricken by the incident.
