Raha college focusses NE culture

Raha, the name of an area hemmed in between Nagaon and Morigaon districts of central Assam turned in to a mini north east when a local college took out a huge procession showcasing the region’s rich art and culture on Friday.

The student union of Raha College took the colourful procession in the area in the morning to mark the on going college week which is closing on Saturday.

College principal Beda Prasad Chaliha flagged off the procession in presence of his teaching and mon teaching staff which drew huge applause in the entire huge area a couple of months after Raha was hit by protest over the move to shift the proposed AIIMS in the area.

Other focus of attraction of the college event this time is games and sports apart from other shows. Cultural shows are also lined up on the occasion.
