Thanks to the Chicago folks on the excellently executed job of hosting the 2011 Assam Convention. The hotel selection was wonderful. The food was plenty and delicious! The cultural program and the fashion show were very well organized. Each of the items presented by the children and the adults were of very high standard. It was a big surprise to see so many new talents, adults and the young! The three groups of chorus singers in the Anima Chakravartty Memorial Chorus Competition raised the level to a high standard.
The opening song presented by the Chicago folks with its original content has enthralled everybody! It was a delight to listen to our own Rabin Goswami and Sankumani Sarma with their wives also moving in to join them.
