Lachit Divas

The great patriot and supreme commander-in chief of Ahom dynasty, Lachit Borphukan was remembered today (24th Nov, 2016) by students and teachers of VKV Umrangso. The programme was conducted at the activity hall during the last two periods. It began with offering floral tribute at the portrait of Lachit Borphukan. The Principal of the vidyalaya offered floral tribute and expressed deep respect on behalf of all of us. A patriotic song was sung by a group of students. It was followed by a speech delivered by Sri Samrat Paul (a teacher) highlighting Lachit’s victory over Mughals at Saraighat battle, his endeavour to keep so many tribes united against the mutual aggression and his patriotism.
