Former vice president of Asam Sahitya Sabha, Mrinalini Devi, emphasised the urgency of increasing the number of Assamese speakers to ensure the survival of the language in the state. She expressed concern over a section of Assamese people embracing Western culture, which could lead to a gradual erosion of Assamese culture. Devi underlined that literature and culture are indispensable for the survival of a nation and its societal fabric. She urged the younger generation to be well-versed in the ancient teachings of the Ramayana and the Mahabharata, emphasising that these teachings can play a significant role in reforming Assamese society.
