    Mahatma’s last visit to Assam was in 1946. I was then a 9 year old boy. Mr Gandhi set up Ashram in Sarania Hill, in Guwahati. I remember this great event very clearly. That was because my elder sister who was about 13 years old was an resident of the ashram for about 10 days. He sailed in a ship upstream in River Brahmaputra from then Bengal and landed in river port in Guwahati. He was received by Congress freedom fighters and Gandhians like Lokopriya Gopinath Bordoloi, Mr Bishnuram Medhi, Mr Siddinath Sarma and others. From the River port to Sarania he travelled in an Austin car. I still remember the Registration no of car which was ASK 205. There were few cars at that time. This car was owned by Mr Bishnuram Medhi, our maternal granduncle. It was through his encouragement that my sister got into ashram to learn about Gandhiji, the simple life he led, to lead by example and above all the dignity of labour.
