My Latest Book
THE REDEEMER authored by me is the first English novel on the life of Srimanta Sankaradeva. It brings alive the tumultous time that the saint litterateur lived in. I believe that the truthfully constructed narrative presents an interesting reading on the multi-faceted activities by the maestro, who composed songs, dances etc. It was Srimanta Sankaradeva who created the Sattriya dance. He was the first playwright in modern Indian languages. His epic play ‘Chihna-Yatra’ enacted at Bardowa in 1468 AD launched drop-scene for the first time. It was his Ankiya style of plays that led to the emergence of other play forms in different places.
The novel depicts the sufferings of the medieval saint, who was persecuted by feudal kings for his egalitarian activities. He lost his son-in-law, but did not swerve from his path. His creation, NAMGHAR is a social institution which survives till date and keeps the people of Assam in a peaceful united manner. THE REDEEMER brings alive the life of the great creator Srimanta Sankaradeva. I am sure you will like it. The link for procuring it from Amazon is given on the left.
