Talking to newsmen at Guwahati Press Club here today, Sonsaran Society general secretary Reepa Goswami Baruah said: “Srimanta Sankaradeva and Madhabdeva created Borgeet and Ankiat as the prime media for prayer. They created these valuable art forms, and the nous of their spread and propagation lies with us. This is the reason why we’ve been organizing such competitions since 2013. On July 13, we’re going to give away Guru Sankar-Madhab Award. In sync with this, there will also be a cultural programme.”
