61st Bodo Sahitya Sabha:
President Ram Nath Kovind, who is on a four-day visit to the North Eastern States, will attend the concluding session of the 61st Bodo Sahitya Sabha at Kachubari in Tamulpur district of Assam.
- It is a historic moment for the Bodo Sahitya Sabha as no President of India has ever attended any literary event of any language in the northeastern region.
- Boro, also called Bodo, is the largest ethnolinguistic group in the Assam state of India.
- They are spread across north-eastern India.
- They are concentrated mainly in the Bodoland Territorial Region of Assam, though Bodos inhabit all other districts of Assam and Meghalaya.
- Bodos are officially identified as “Boro, Borokachari” scheduled tribe under the Constitution of India.
- Bodos speak Bodo language, which is recognised as one of twenty-two Scheduled languages of India.
