Other activities of the Trust

Reading room and Library

After the death of Renuka Devi Barkataki in 2017, the Barkataki residence at Panchabati, Guwahati, has been converted into a meeting place for Senior Citizens. Named Addaghar this facility also houses a library cum reading room including books belonging to Munin Barkataki and the books of the Munin Barkotoki Award winners. The office of the Trust is also housed there.

Research and support

In 2012, a fellowship has been awarded to a scholar to decipher the diaries of Munin Barkotoki. Once that job is done, the fellowship will be freed for other purposes.

The Trust is particularly keen to support a student historian who would be interested in doing a comprehensive biography of Satyen Barkataki, possibly as part of his/her doctoral project. Interested candidates are requested to contact the Managing Trustee.
