About ADUJ
The First edition of the University’s Cultural and Literary Fest has been aptly christened “Adwik Ujjapan” – Sanskrit for Unique and Assamese for Celebration – which signifies the spirit and ethos the University wishes to imbibe and share with the people who become a part of this endeavour of the University. This is the first time the University is engaged in the organization of such a venture since its inception and it is with great optimism and enthusiasm, that we open the doors of our home to the world to come and be part of our celebration!

They say words are the deadliest swords that can endure a wound that one carries until eternity. And to use these very words to put your thoughts and opinions across and be recognized for them is, if not the best, but one of the greatest feats.
