 চাৰ মই অসম সাহিত্য সভাৰ আজীৱন সদস্য হ\'বলৈ ইচ্ছা কৰিছোঁ‌।পাৰিম নে?

 Respected Sir, I wish that what I am going to say will be taken as a matter of grave concern and I seek guidance and way to approach this deep rooted problem. I am afraid to state that right from the temples of learning, the root place of development of a language and culture, I see that Assamese people have failed in just the roots. You might have observed that in all the education imparting institutions in Assam, DO NOT USE ASSAMESE in any of their formal certificates that are awarded to students, right from SEBA, AHSEC, Dibrugarh University, Gauhati University, Assam Medical College, Assam Engineering College, and various other. The culture is very strange when we compare Assam with any other state of India, or for that matter any prestigious institution in the world. No one, at least in the universities IGNORE THEIR NATIVE LANGUAGE to the extent that institutions in Assam does. Sir, I wish to approach the authorities for this, but need your help and guidance as to how to overcome the red tapes and laziness of the officers in Government departments. Your help will be very valuable, waiting for your reply, Thanks a lot sir. Hope that this letter finds a concern from you.
