Silchar is one of the most beautiful cities in Assam. Barak river is the lifeline of my city. It is one of the transit city, where, one must stop and replenish before visiting many remote areas of North-East India. Silchar is famous for its friendly people and mouth watering delicacies.

Someone visiting Silchar must know about Bhasha Shahid station. This Railway station named after the saheeds’ who gave away their lives for the freedom of language in the state of Assam. Each person in entire city ‘Silchar’ and the entire Barak Valley region is proud of these saheed. Eleven people from different parts of region gave away their lives in this place.

I am from Silchar, ASSAM. If you want to come here, please beware of fake friends, for they permit men to approach them only for their own benefits; they behave as friends when it is for their advantage, but they do not stand by a man when he is in need.
