Book Description
About The Book

This book is a new inclusion to the Sahitva Akademi's Histories of Literature series. It is all the more important in its way as Bodo now is a recognized Indian language. The book commences with a valuable introduction on the Bodos which traces the origin, migration and settlement of the race and throws light on their religion and culture. This introduction beyond doubt would be a key to a more intense understanding of the line through which Bodo literature has come along. Starting from the Bibar-Alongbar era and the past even beyond that, the history delineates the run of Bodo literature till the contemporary scene and in doing so it investigates across several genres.
