‘Sahitya Surya’ Dai’s 81st birthday on June 1

ITANAGAR, May 30: Asom Sahitya Sabha (ASS), apex literary body of Assam will celebrate 81st birthday of Arunachal’s great litterateur ‘Sahitya Surya’ Lummer Dai on June 1.

The literary icon’s birthday celebration will turn out to be a low-key affair unlike previous years as the ASS has decided for limited public celebration in view of nationwide lockdown and physical distancing norms to prevent spread of COVID-19 pandemic.

The celebration will be in ASS central office at Jorhat and nine regional offices across Assam by lighting a lamp in front of the late novelist’s portrait, ASS secretary general Jadav Sarma said in a statement on Saturday.

He exhorted all to commemorate the day and pay homage to the litterateur and said that a lamp will be lighted at Bihpura-based Lummer Dai North East Centre for Language, Literature and Cultural Research, and Lummer Dai Bhavan at Tezpur.
