High Commissioner Message

I am happy to know that the Northeast Rongali Nite 2016 is being organized in Singapore on 21 May 2016. This is the first time that the rich and diverse culture of the North-eastern Region in India is being presented as part of a single event in Singapore.

The North-eastern region is India’s gateway to the ASEAN which is at the core of our Act East Policy. This region thus serves as a natural link for greater engagement with the ASEAN countries, including Singapore.

I felicitat the organizers, the Assam Association Singapore, for taking this initiative. I am confident that this platform will provide an opportunity to the people from the North-eastern region in India who are now staying in Singapore to share their rich culture and in turn enrich the social fabric of Singapore

President Message

My dear family members of Assam Association of Singapore,


Today I am addressing you all with a mixed feeling. We the people of Assam really wait for the whole year to our most enjoyable and colourful Rongali Bihu celebration. In our busy schedule of life there are very few occasions where  we meet  our “apunjon” to celebrate such  function. Even though we are far from our homes, but  still  we   decided to  celebrate together this “Otikoi moromor bohagor Bihuti”   in a more colourful manner. Unfortunately due to  some work urgency, I have to go to India , so,  I will be missing this function this time . Feel little sad about it.


Any way, Sokolooke  Bihur bohut bohut morom,  subho itcha aru ulog jonaloo. I wish you  all  a very Happy Bohag Bihu celebration.  This time following the Magh Bihu celebration and Annual General  Body Meeting,  we had very short time to organize   this Bohag Bihu function.  But very  pleased to see the great  enthusiasm and high spirits of the members  which  made it possible to organize  everything in a short time period and I am sure all of you will enjoy the function thoroughly.


Time passes very fast.  The other day we were planning how  to form an Association with  those coming  from  the North East India to work  in  Singapore. Now we have completed more than a year following the formation and registration of the Association. In last Annual General Body meeting  members  were in high spirits  to have more fun  and more  activities of the association.  So we had to  expand  our subcommittees . New members  voluntarily  came forward to contribute their services to the Association. Mean time, unfortunately our last secretary, Mr Sanjeev saikia had to leave us as he got transferred to china . Also in view of office work pressures and other commitments, Treasurer Mr Roop Barua  and joint treasurer Mr Pranab Choudhury also resigned . So we  had to bring in three dynamic young persons  to the  Management Committee . Injection of new blood has given more dynamism to the Association’s activities.  The new  management committee has already met few times to plan our future activities in line with our Association’s goals and objectives. I am sure with more members  joining the Association,  we can have more functions and also  plan to do something good  to our community, to Singapore and to Assam . The Association is the platform through which we can pass  our rich culture, heritage , music and language  etc to the younger generation.

Enjoy the Bohag Bihu .

Once again with lots of love and best wishes to all of you
