Book Description

About The Book

Hemchandra Barua (1835-1896) writer, editor, grammarian, lexicographer, and social reformer, is considered the Father of Modern Assamese literature. Hemchandra's Asamiya Vyakaran, the first Assamese gram mar in the Assamese language, delineated clear-cut rules for spelling and syntax, leaving no room for obscurity or confusion.

His Hemkosh (Dictionary) became a standard lexicon to settle all disputes relating to spelling, usage, etc. In fact his Grammar and Dictionary remain standard texts even today. Hemchandra played a historic role as a writer of school books. Credit also goes to him to be the first to introduce satire and criticism in Assamese literature.
