Social organisation of Assam Adharxila, formed with the intention to promote the spirit of brotherhood, reconciliation and unity amongst various ethnic groups in the state as well as to promote and popularize Assamese culture and literature across the globe, has been praised and backed by many. After the members of this organisation underwent an oath taking ceremony yesterday, it has been praised by banned militant outfit of the region, United Liberation Front of Asom (ULFA).
In a press release sent to Times of Assam by the outfit’s Assistant Secretary of Information and Publicity wing, Lt Arunodoy Asom alias Arunodoy Dohotiya, ULFA praised the efforts of noted writer and academician Rita Choudhury under whose leadership the organisation took shape. He also stated that the outfit is hopeful that Adharxila will stand as an example for the generations to come and will once again bring the different ethnic groups and communities closer to each other.
The concept of Adharxila was initiated in the backdrop of the turbulent period in Assam as the spirit of brotherhood amongst the ethnic groups is almost a thing of past. Adharxila aims to bring back the spirit and to enhance the intellectual pursuits of the state, working closely in different social sectors like history, culture, small-scale industries, children’s literature, etc.
