Guwahati: A weaver from Jonai, Dhemaji named Jinu Chutia Baruah has crafted the Socio and Cultural history of Assam on a 45 foot long Gamosa. The 45 foot long Gamosa includes the names of 68 renowned personalities of Assam Sahitya Sabha and encrypted pictures of some eminent political leaders. Gamosa is an indispensable part of Assamese life and culture with its distinctive symbolic significance.

Without any kind of government support Jinu Chutia Baruah saved fifty thousand rupees for weaving Gamosas. The Gamosa was showcased on Tuesday in Assam Sahitya Sabha Bhawan. She was praised by the members of Assam Sahitya Sabha for her contribution towards the culture and history of Assam.
In a press release Parmananada Rajbongshi, President, Assam Sahitya Sabha stated that the 45 foot long Gamosa will be again showcased in the Sualkuchi session of the Sabha.
