The 117th birth anniversary of Rupkonwar Jyoti Prasad Agarwala has been observed publicly at his birthplace Tamulbari Tea Estate in Dibrugarh. The birth anniversary has been celebrated in association with Tamulbari Tea Estate.
Assam Chief Minister Sarbananda Sonowal participated in the programme as the Chief Guest. The chief minister has also inaugurated a bust of Rupkonwar Agarwala in front of the house located at Tamulbari Tea Estate.
Agarwala’s three daughters Jayashree Chaliha, Gyanashree Pathak and Satyashree Das have also paid homage on their father’s birth anniversary.
Meanwhile, in the past years, Rupkonwar’s house has shattered as there is no one to take care of. At last, Litterateur and tea farmer Devi Prasad Bagoria has taken the responsibility of preserving the birth place of Rupkonwar.
Bagoria said that the tea estate will be converted into Jyoti Tirtha and on this day of his birth anniversary, CM Sonowal has unveiled the project. This Jyoti Tirtha will preserve his creativity and his contribution towards the society.
