Background of the album:
The find the root of the album, we need to go back to 1985, when Dr. Amal Saikia was
inspired by many factors of the society during his medical internship. All his experiences
and inspirations took the shape of poetry and were first sung as songs from Dibrugarh All
india radio center in 1985 radio artists Mamata Borthakur and Rumi Goswami. Later in 1987,
few more songs of Dr Saikia were brocasted from Biswanath Chariali radio center.
Due to Dr Saikia's professional commitments, the lyrics were almost forgotten over the years
but they finally got life back again with some efforts from artists Tarun Saikia from Bisswanath
Chariali and few more enthusiasts.
