Ans :- My dear Suren,

    Today I shall introduce to a great son of Assam namely Lakshminath Bezbarua. His contribution to wards Assamese language and literature were so great that he was fondly called Sahityarathi. His father Dinanath Bezbarua was a top government officer under British administration. His mother Thaneswari Devi was a housewife. He was born on the ‘Lakshmi Purnima’ day of 1864. Lakshminath had a colourful life. He was a businessman and an employee of a private company also. He spent most of his lifetime outside Assam. After spending first 22 years in Assam (1864-1886). He was in Kolkata for 30 years (1887-1917). Since 1917 he was at Sambalpur in Odisha for nearly 20 years. He died on 26th March, 1938 at Dibrugarh.

      Lakshminath Bezbarua was a great litterateur. There is no branch of literature which he did not excel in. He was a patriot also. When Assamese literature stepped into modern age, Lakshminath enriched it by authoring books, publishing periodicals. He was the author of Assam’s national song ‘O Mor Aponar Desh’. His name would be pronounced with reverence and gratitude till the Assamese language and race survives. I hope this reaches you in best of your health mind. With greetings, I conclude.

                                           Yours sincerely
