Mrs. Bhanu Deka Bordoloi, working in Assam Police (Battalion), was recently felicitated on 29th December, 2013 by the Dimoria District Tribal Sangha (DDTS) (Unit of All Assam Tribal Sangha) on the occasion of its 20th Three yearly General Conference held at Sonapur for her achievement in the XX World Masters Athletics Championships 2013.

Dimoria is a greater area under the Guwahati Sub-Division, Kamrup (Metro) district of Assam. From the time immemorial, the entire Dimoria was an inhabitation of some prominent tribal people of Assam, such as, Bodo, Tiwa, Karbi, Garo, Rabha, Koch, etc. With agriculture as primary source of living, therefore, the demography of Dimoria was dominated by tribal population. Hence, the Dimoria was categorized as an area under tribal belt in Assam.  Consisting of 12 Gaon Panchayats, Dimoria Development Block at Sonapur is one of the responsible authorities for development works at present in Dimoria. In the course of time, along with the tribal inhabitants, Dimoria becomes the home of non-tribal and other tribal communities also, such as, Assamese, Bengali, Tea tribes like Munda, Chautal, Kauri, Kurrung, Haria, etc. A measurable area of Dimoria is covered with beautiful natural features like green hills and hillocks including Dhoumara hills, rivers and rivulets, water bodies called beels, paddy fields, etc.
Besides Mrs. Bordoloi, the other senior athletes of Assam those who secured positions in the XX World Masters Athletics Championships 2013 are Dr Biswa Ranjan Kalita, 75 years group, from Tezpur secured fifth position for 1.18 meter in the Event High Jump in 100 and 200 meter dash. In the 2000 Meter Steeplechase, Ms Rani Brahma, W55 group, from Bongaigaon and Ms Mayarani Brahma, W50 group, from Chirang, both secured ninth position in 13:54.23 minutes and 11:22.51 minutes respectively.

Moreover, Shri Jadu Nath Gogoi of Kamrup (Metro) district and Shri Narayan Buragohain of Silapathar secured position in 100 & 300 Meter Hurdles and 200 Meter Dash respectively.

Further, it is noteworthy to be mentioned here that the 17th Asia Masters Athletics Championship 2012 was held in Chinese Taipei during 2-7 November, where Master Athletes from Assam, 14 women and 4 men, participated as member of the Indian contingent, inclusive of Mrs. Bhanu Deka Bordoloi. In the championships, Ms Bhanu secured Second position in the Event W35 group, 2000 Meter Steeplechase and won Silver medal.

The Master Athlete, Mrs. Bhanu showed her sports excellence in the national level championships held in Bangalore in 2011 also, winning all three Gold medals in three Events, such as, 10000 Meter, 2000 Meter and 5 Km Walk.

Mrs. Bhanu Deka Bordoloi was thrilled to express about her experience gained and about the outstanding achievement brought to the country and the state of Assam, but at the same time, she expressed her disappointment with regard to financial support from the government and allied organizations. She told Dimorian Review that without financial assistance and sponsorship participation in world championships outside the country is very difficult which stands as a matter of discourage. She tried to manage her travel expenses from personal loan from bank to participate in the XX World Masters Athletics Championships 2013 and her loan repayment has not been completed yet. However, she acknowledged and offered her heartiest gratitude to Dimoria District Tribal Sangha for providing financial support in this regard.  Again, she is interested to take part in the forthcoming athletics event to be held in Japan, but on account of financial constraints this outstanding sportsperson has still not been able to confirm her participation in this international sports event. It needs to be mentioned that Mrs. Bhanu Deka Bordoloi is a mother of 10 years old daughter besides a successful sportsperson.
