    Asam Sahitya Sabha founded as far back as 1917 AD is going to complete one hundred years of its existence in 2017 next. The Central Committee of the Sabha has, in response to an appeal from the Rangpur Sahitya Sabha as well as Sivasagar Zila Sahitya Sabha, decided to hold its 74th biennial cum Centenary Session, at Sivasagar on February, 1, 2, 3, 4 and 5, 2017 next. Accordingly a Reception Committee was formed in a large public meeting comprising men of letters, leading citizens, representatives from various branches of the Sabha in the district, representatives of different socio-cultural and literary organizations in the district. The said Reception Committee, now in its full force, unanimously decided to host this gala occasion in a grand style in keeping with the glorious tradition of the organization. Meanwhile, the historic Rupahi-Zerenga Pathar has been chosen for the venue of the Centenary Celebration. The five-day long literary and cultural extravaganza will showcase the cultural heritage of the people of Assam besides literary achievements over the years through various programmes interalia - Bookfair, Tradefair, Literary symposia, colourful Cultural procession, History session, Darshan sanmilan, Sangeet sanmilan, Kunhi, Aakash, Yuva sansad and cultural programmes of various ethnic groups from Assam and other States of the country. More than three thousand delegates from different parts of Assam, hundreds of life members, distinguished guests from various parts of the country and abroad, cultural troupes from other states are expected to grace the occasion by their benign presences and active participation. Commiserating the Centenary Celebration, the Reception Committee is planning to construct a Heritage Site at Zerenga Pathar (subject to allotment of land) with installation of statues of the doyens of Assamese literature, publication of one hundred resourceful books, souvenir and some other important literary works. It needs hardly to be emphasized that for successful implementation of the entire scheme of things a huge fund (not below 5 crores) will be required. Under the circumstances the Reception Committee solicits constructive suggestions and helping hands from all quarters. Most important is generous financial contribution from one and all. The Reception Committee makes an ardent appeal to all individuals, employees and businessmen, industrialists, public and private undertakings, multi-national companies and all those who can afford.
