GUWAHATI, Dec 10: Assam Governor Prof. Jagdish Mukhi presented Jeevan Ram Mungi Devi Goenka Lifetime Achievement Award to five noted cultural and literary persons at a function held at ITA Pragjyoti Cultural Complex at Machkhowa here on Sunday evening.

Speaking on the occasion, Prof. Mukhi urged the society at large to contribute to the cause of humanity. Acknowledging the role of Jeewan Ram Mungi Devi Goenka Public Charitable Trust, Prof. Mukhi said that a small work of benevolence goes a long way in lending a life of dignity to the poor as the Charitable Trust has curved a niche in rendering humanitarian services to the society and giving the poor and needy a chance to lead a life of respect. He also appealed to the people to provide selfless service as per thier strength without expecting anything in return.

In a country like ours, Assam is famous for its unique art, culture and literature and giving the awards in recognition to the unparalleled contributions of the award winners is a testimony to the prolific ambience of Assam for art, culture and literature. He also said that since youths are the future of the country every organization in their capacity should do something to motivate the youths and indirectly help the society to go forward.
