Harka Bahadur Chhetri (Author)
Synopsis The Pragiyotishpura or Kamrupa mentioned in the Kalikapurana or in the Jogini Tantra, had been dominantly remained under the Mongolian cultural people since 2500 years to 3000 years back. The word 'Kamrupa' changed into Asham, Hasam, Assam and Asom with the entrance of the Ahoms from the Burmadesh (Myanmar) after 1230 A.D. The bodos in different parts of this region were, according to place, known a Dimacha Kachari, Barman in Silchar, Tippera in Tripura, Rabha and Garos in the Southern Assam, Mech and Koch-kachari in the plain Assam and Meche in the West Bengal and East Nepal. This greater community, fragmented in different names in different places, have been tried to extract in the book and tried by the author for their unity and integrity to relate them with the 'Bod' province of the Mongoloid region in the North China and the Sivarai mountain of the same region which relates them with their God 'Sivarai'. In fact, the Mongolian culture or the Bodo Community in Assam, is a very rich culture which have been analytically discussed according to their subcommunities name. The main aim of the study on them, was to unite, uplift and identify them to the world stage as a culturally rich community, though socially and literally backward in comparison to other communities. The great Vaisnavite prophet Sri Sri Sandardeva, tried his best to bring all communities under the Ek Sarana Bhagamati Dharma, but the Ahoms were irritated with him. His educational principle flourished at the time of king Naranarayana of the Koch dynasty. This has been studied in The Bodos in Assam: A Socio-Cultural study.
