Wonders of wonders! Aideo Handiqe is alive!
Thanks to  Golaghat dist. administration Aideo Handiqe, the first female cine star of Assam is still alive among us. At the time when the state govt. announces a yearly award in memory of the late actress, still the website is utterly ignorant of her demise. Aideo Handiqe is very much alive according to the website and now leads a  lonely  life at her home in Panidihing Gaon, near Kamargaon.  When any body opens the website of Golaghat dist. administration, there are many mild shocks and surprises in store for them. For instance the website name Mr. Harendra Nath Bora as the Deputy Commissioner and adviser of the website, but what will surprises the visitors the most that Mr. Bora had long been transferred from here. There is incomplete information about the local educational institution and even the oldest educational institute of Golaghat, the Govt. Bezbaruah Boys Higher Secondary School, which has completed 125 years of its existence did not find a mention, so also Golaghat Commerce College, the only commerce education institute in Golaghat. Also the name of  the present DC is missing from the site. Again if we see the personalities secction of the website, it did not mention the names of Syed Abdul Malik, Dr. Nagen Saikia, Upen Kakoti etc who has invaluable contribution to assamese culture and literature. No point in maintaining a website if its not updated. District administration websites are supposed to be the authentic source of information for people.  Internet which is the most effective mode of communication and information now a days has not been harnessed to proper use by the dist. administration of Golaghat which only points out to the sorry state of affairs prevailing in the administration.
