‘Like’ for Assamese literature

Golaghat, Jan. 8: A group of 16 friends here has formed a publication group on Facebook to provide a platform for budding Assamese writers.

The friends, who hail from different professional backgrounds but share a common interest in Assamese literature, recently launched Mukh Prakashan.

“It is a wrong notion that literary writings on Facebook are below standard. We wanted to prove that such a perception was wrong, which is why we undertook such an endeavour. Our first step will be publishing an anthology of 333 poems, some of which have already been posted on the networking site,” Rajiv Rajkhowa, secretary of Mukh, told The Telegraph.

The compilation, which also features poems penned by the likes of Harekrishna Deka, Anubhab Tulashi, Nilim Kumar, Deva Prashad Talukdar and Pranab Kumar Borman, was launched last month in Guwahati and is now available in all leading book stores across the state.

Swapna Bhattacharyya Sharma, adviser to the group, said the publishing group would also publish stories and articles.

And, if any member of the group has difficulties publishing their books, Mukh Prakashan will shoulder the responsibility of bringing out the tomes.
