GUWAHATI, Aug 14 - Dr Pradip Sarma, a popular name in the field of history and culture of North East India, passed away at the residence of his daughter here today. He was 84.

He had undergone a heart surgery at a city hospital last week.

Known widely for popularising investigative research in field archaeology, including ancient architecture, Sarma wrote several books in English and Assamese such as Temple Architecture of Assam, Assam and Indo-China, Holy Shrines of Assam, and Asamar Bilupta Maidam Parampara (The Lost Mound-Burial System of Tai-Ahom Rulers of Assam).

A diploma holder in Civil Engineering and MA in Ancient Indian History, Sarma got his PhD from Gauhati University in the subject �Temple Architecture of Assam from the Gupta Period (CE 320) to the end of the Ahom Rule (CE 1826).�

A remarkable contribution of Dr Sarma is a series of research papers and popular articles through which he was able to establish linkage between the ethnic cultures of the Brahmaputra valley with the greater Indian culture.
