GUWAHATI, Dec 14 - Acclaimed author Amish Tripathi, who formally released the Assamese version of his book The Oath of the Vayuputras translated by Bipul Deuri at the Srimanta Sankaradeva Kalakshetra on Sunday, said that he had a desire to pen a volume on the heroic exploits of legendary Assamese general Lachit Barphukan.
Amish � the author of the Shiva trilogy � said that while many other great warriors of India were well-known across the nation, it was unfortunate that a hero of the calibre of Lachit Barphukan, who handed the Mughals their biggest defeat at the Battle of Saraighat, was unknown to many Indians.
Noted writer Dhruba Hazarika, who was among the participants in the function, gave a critical appraisal of Amish�s works, saying that his writing stood out for its elegance and simplicity of language. Bipul Deuri, who has carved a niche for his translation works, also threw light on the The Oath of Vayuputras.
The Assamese version of The Oath of Vayuputras has been published by Banphool Prakashan.
