"A small room in a small house, at the end of a small bye lane. That is where big things happened. It was a temple of arts in Assam. Film journalism began as a systematic study in the pages of \'Roopkar\'. Children learnt about their culture, painting, song, dance and drama in the haloed portals of \'Aikyataan\', the school of the arts. Broadway theatre, social commitment of an artist, wit, humor, satire, all were discussed and debated by the young, the old, the famous and the struggler alike, who dropped in at all hours. The person holding centre stage was Pabitra Kumar Deka- the first dedicated film journalist of Assam, the founder Editor of First Assamese professionally published film journal of North-East ‘ROOPKAR’. It was he who showed the way to the wide world of creativity and cultural happenings world over, making that small lane of his into a cultural highway. That was Pabitra Kumar Deka an address in himself- By-Lane 2."
