History of Assamese

Assamese, a language quite similar to Bengali, is widely spoken along the Brahmaputra valley. The language itself is known as Asamiya or Assamese in English. To many non-native Assamese speakers, the languages sound awfully familiar to Bengali. However, there are significant differences including grammar, pronunciation and vocabulary. Assamese script is based primarily on Siddham script, were Bengali, Tibetan and Japanese Kana scripts come from. Besides three letters, Assamese and Bengali are identical scripts.

The Assamese language has original roots in Sanskrit and began branching off in the 7th century. It is considered one of the major languages in the Republic of India.

The history of the Assam people dates back to ancient times. The Assam people were historically found in Tantric, Buddhist Assamese and Vedic literature. The Aryans, who were comprised mainly of priests and warriors, settled in Assam. The first known ruler of the Assam people was Mahiranga Danaya, forming the Danaya dynasty. He was followed by Hatakasur, Sambarsur and Ratnasur. The next ruler was Ghatakasur, who made Progiyotishpur (today’s Guwahati) the capital of Assam. Narakasur was killed by Lord Krishna, who is seen repeatedly in Assam mythology. Krishna is known to have fought against the king Bhismaka of Kundil (which is modern-day Sadia) in order to marry Bhismaka’s daughter, Rukmini.

Assamese Literature

Starting in the 1860s, a large number of novelists, writers and poets began flourishing and comprising text in Assamese. Some popular writers include Rajanikanta Bardaloi, Chandra Kumar Agawala, Padmanath Gohain Barawu and Hiteshwar Bezbarua. The most revolutionary, however, was Shankara Deva, who wrote beautiful poems of love and devotional songs.

Assamese Today

Approximately 45 different languages are spoken in Assam today. The three main types of languages spoken in Assam are Austroasiatic, Sino-Tibetan and Indo-European. Vast amounts of people in Assam are bilingual.
