Fondly referred as the Bard of Assam, Dr Bhupen Hazarika conquered the hearts of thousands across the world, rendering evergreen songs including Manuhe Manuhor Babe, Moi Eti Jajabor, Bistirno parore, and Snehe Amar among others.

Born in 1926 to Nilakanta and Shantipriya Hazarika in Sadiya, Bhupen Hazarika had written many songs based on the themes of communal amity, universal justice and empathy in Assamese language that were translated into Bangla, Hindi and others.

He was posthumously awarded both the Padma Vibhushan, India’s second-highest civilian award, in 2012, and the Bharat Ratna, India’s highest civilian award, in 2019.

Dr Bhupen Hazarika passed away on November 5, 2011.
