Write Short Notes On

Q.1: Kirtichandra Borbarua.

Ans: Kritichandra Borborua was a disciple of the Dihing Sattra,which was at constant loggerheads with the Mayamara Sattra.Thus Kirichandra grabbed every chance to humiliate followers of the Mayamara Sattra. The atrocities of Kirtichandra on the Mayamara Sattra and its disciples contributed to the beginning of the Moamoriya Rebellion. During the reign of Swargodeo Laksmi Singha, Kirtichandra insulted the Mahanta of the Mayamara Sattra and also humiliated Nahra Khora and Ragha Moran,by cutting off a ear and by flogging respectively. This act of Kirtichandra lightened the fire of Moamoriya Rebellion,Kirtichandra,due to his misdeeds can be directly held responsible for decay of the Ahom Monarchy.

Q.2: Mayamara Sattra.

Ans:Do your Self.

Q.3: Purnanada (original name- Lari Gohain)

Ans: The son of Ghanashyam Burhagohain became the Burhagohain of the Ahom Kingdom during the reign of Gaurinath Singha. He was the Rajmantri or Burhagohain from 1782  to 1817,i.e.for a period of nearby 35 years. Since Gaurinath Singha was not an efficient leader,the entire authority and power was passed on to the Burhagohain. Purnanada taking advantage of the situation took complete charge of the administration. He became very powerful and was given more importance than the King. He was however a very able administrator and leader. He suppressed all the major rebellions that took place during his tenure and re-established the Ahom Kingdom. During the Moamoriya rebellion, he protected his subjects like a bird does her young ones. His courage, valor and devotion to duty is admired even today.

Q.4: Kanri paik and Chamua paik.

Ans: One of the unique features of Ahom monarchy was the practice of paik service by which all male members had to render free service to the state. An individual was supposed to render 3 to 4 months of compulsory service to the state. The paik system was divided into two classes – Chamua paik and the Kanri paik.Chamua paiks were those who could free themselves from the forced labour by paying a certain amount of money. They were considered a higher class or a gentleman class. The Kanri paiks were those who could not exempt themselves from paik service and hence they held a lower status than the Chamua paiks. The number of Chamua paiks gradually began to increase,thereby increasing the burden of paik service on the Kanri paiks. Thus the paik system gave rise to social inequality.

Q.5: Trade treaty between Welsh and Gaurinath Singha.

Ans: One of the achievements of Captain Thomas Welsh’s expedition was the conclusion of a trade treaty with the Ahom King,Gaurinath Singha. The treaty was signed on 8 February 1793. The treaty controlled the trade of Assam to the advantage of the Britishers. The important clauses of this treaty were :

(i) 10% tax was imposed on any commodity imported into Assam from any English dominated region.

(ii) 10% tax was imposed on any commodity exported from Assam to any English dominated region.

(iii) Grain and rice were to be tax-free.

(iv) To facilitate collection of import and export duties,two custom offices were established in Gauhati and Kandhar.

(v) No other European traders were permitted to trade in Assam without the prior consent of the Ahom or the English governments.

Q.6: Bar Raja Phuleswari.

Ans: Queen Phuleswari was the wife of Siva Singha,the Ahom ruler. She was a powerful woman who wielded considerable power. She was given the title ‘Bor Raja’,which means the real or chief king. She strongly oppossed the Vaishnava cult,and popularised Shaktism. Some of the head priests of the Sattras called Satradhikars were restrained and forced to smear the blood of sacrificed animals on their foreheads as tilak. Her actions and unpopular measures heightened the already existing social and religious discontentment in Assam.

Q.7: Parbatiya Gosain.

Ans: Swargadeo Rudra Singha summoned the Shakta Brahman pandit- Krishnaram Bhattacharya,from Nadiya in Bengal. The main object of the arrival of the Brahman was to promote Shaktism in Assam. Rudra Singha’s son Siva Singha who was also a great follower,became a disciple of Krishnaram Bhattacharya. Later,he established Krishnaram in the Nilachal hills. Krishnaram and his successors came to be known as ‘Parbatiya Gosain’ as they resided on top of the Nilachal Hill.

Q.8: Sarbanada.

Ans: One of the most affected regions during the Moamoriya Rebellion was Bengmara (presently- Tinsukia).The people of this place who were suffering due to the oppressive policies and system of Ahom ruler rose up in rebellion. A person named Sarbanda Singha declared himself as the king of Bengmara and ruled over the area till the end of the Moamoriya Rebellion. All throughout his rule,he maintained a rebellious administration against the monarchy.

Q.9: Bharat Singha.

Ans: Raja Bharat Singha,a Moamoriya,was a relative of the Mahanta of the Mayamara Sattra.

During the second phase of the Moamoriya Rebellion,the rebels in the Upper Assam rose against the Ahom ruler and occupied the capital city,Rangpur. The Ahom king,Gaurinath Singha was forced to flee from the capital and seek refuge in Gauhati. Therefore,the rebels installed Bharat Singha as the new Ahom king. In 1794 when the joint British army led by Captain Welsh and the Assamese Army under Purnananda Burhagohain attacked Rangpur,Bharat Singha was badly injured and somehow managed to flee alive. He was however killed in the fourth phase of the Moamoriya rebellion.

Q.10: Rangpur city.

Ans: Rangpur was the capital of the Ahom Kingdom. The capital was surrounded by a brick fortification extending over an area of about 20 miles. Rangpur was characterised by fertile land suitable for agriculture. Most of the land of the capital Rangpur belonged to the King or the high officials of the Ahom Kingdom. When Captain Welsh marched towards Assam along with the Assamese soldiers,the Moamoriyas fled to Rangpur. In 1794,Captain Welsh suppressed the revolt and freed Rangpur from the clutches of rebels.
