About us –
Assamese literature sprang out of traditional oral creative works (tales, ballads, and work, festival, and cradle songs). Present-day Assamese folklore provides some insight into the pre-written state of Assamese literature. The late 13th and early 14th centuries saw the emergence of written literature.
Assamese literature incorporated its rich classical heritage intensely in its early stages of development. In Assamese translations and adaptations of Sanskrit epics and puranas, elements of everyday life and Assamese folklore were frequently incorporated into the conventional storylines.
During the 15th and 16th centuries, Assamese literature reflected ideals that had emerged in Northern India within the antifeudal, religious reform bhakti movement, whose Assamese ideologist was Sankardeb, a great poet and pioneer of Assamese play.
The works of Assamese literature throughout this period—narrative poems, dramas, and hymns in worship of Vishnu—were characterised by the idea of human equality before God.
Courtly historical records, buranji, in prose and verse—for example, the Assamese Chronicle, 1681, and the Chronicle of Kamarupa, 1700—and biographies of religious luminaries, charitaputhi, produced in Vishnu temples, occupied a significant role in Assamese literature in the 17th and 18th centuries. The latter’s terminology was frequently purposefully convoluted.
Our main aim is preserved and presents the Assamese language, literature, history, scripts, dictionary, grammar, and every word of Assamese language in the world of internet in Assamese Unicode Format.
