Gonit Sora Webinars

From June 2020 to May 2021 we organized a series of webinars (sometimes in association with colleges in Assam). This page lists all the webinars (as well as slides and videos of the ones already held).

All our talks are recorded and the recording is made available on our YouTube channel later.
