GUWAHATI: Sahitya Akademi Award-winning litterateur Atulananda Goswami, who passed away at the Gauhati Medical College Hospital (GMCH) early Wednesday morning following age-related conditions, was given a tearful adieu at Nabagraha crematorium by family members and host of his admirers.
Known for his works like ‘Namghoria’, ‘Hamdoi Pulor Jon’, ‘Raajpat’, ‘Polatok’, ‘Seneh Jorir Ganthi’, the 87-year-old was in the ICU for about 10 days. Goswami’s wife had predeceased him and he leaves behind his children, grandchildren and a host of relatives.

The Assam Sahitya Sabha also bestowed him with the Ambikagiri Raichoudhury award for his acclaimed novel ‘Namgharia.’
He was also honoured with the Kumar Kishor Memorial Award, the Katha Award and the Sneha Bharati Sahitya Samman. Goswami also translated many English, Bengali and Odia texts into Assamese.
Condoling the death of the writer, chief minister Himanta Biswa Sarma tweeted, “The news of the passing away of prominent litterateur Atulananda Goswami has deeply saddened me. We will forever cherish his contribution to the literary as well as social life of Assam.”
