KOKRAJHAR: The 6th death anniversary of the founder of Bodoland Indigenous Games Association (BIGA), Chanakya Brahma was observed by the association at his mausoleum at Choto Adabari on Wednesday. The other district committees of the association also observed the death anniversary of Brahma in their respective districts. In Kokrajhar, the BIGA Kokrajhar district committee observed the occasion. The vice-president of BIGA central committee, Abinash Islary hoisted the flag while Roni Bala Brahma, wife of Chanakya Brahma paid floral tribute.

In his address, Abinash Islary said that Brahma had brought a revolution to revive the old traditional games. He said that most of the traditional games had disappeared and the young generation did not know the value of old games. It was Chanakya Brahma who worked relentlessly to preserve, reactivate and develop traditional games with new vigour, he said, adding that the BIGA was formed at his behest in 2008 but before that, he used to demonstrate traditional games in various festivals across the State and he started research work 25 years before BIGA was formed. He also said the existing leaders and workers of the BIGA should fulfil the aspirations of Brahma.

The president of Dularai Boro Harimu Afad (DBHA), Jogeswar Brahma and secretary of Bodo Sahitya Sabha (BSS), Jwngsar Narzary also spoke on the occasion.
