After completing his doctorate degree from the Gauhati University, he joined the University Law College as the Principal in the year 1982 and served there for a period of about 22 years.
My father was an exceptional teacher, administrator, and a wonderful human being. His gentle voice and wise counsel have been a guiding light for all of us. His passion for writing made him penned several articles and his autobiography as well. His cheerfulness, encouraging and easy-going traits would definitely charm his surrounding fellow people. He leaves behind a void that is irreparable and difficult to fill for his family and friends. He leaves behind his wife, a son, a daughter and a host of relatives. Today on the day of his challisa, we pray for his eternal peace.
Rest in peace Abba. You will be missed dearly. Until we meet again.
