Sachitra Ankawoli, Sankar Gosain Charit released

By STAFF REPORTER

GUWAHATI, June 21 � Governor Janaki Ballav Patnaik formally released two books, i.e., Sachitra Ankawoli, edited by Narayan Chandra Goswami, Satradhikar of Natun Kamalabari Satra, Majuli, and Sankar Gosain Charit, which is a translation of the original work by an Odiya disciple of Srimanta Sankardev, Govinda Nayak, at a function organized by Kamalabari Satra at the Srimanta Sankaradeva Kalakshetra on Thursday.

In his speech as the chief guest of the function, the Governor praised the effort of the Satradhikar and said that by publishing the book Sachitra Ankawoli, a praiseworthy attempt was being made to recover and re-establish the illustrated form of Assamese literature.

The Governor added that although it was not possible to ascertain the advent of the method of use of the illustrative form, it is an established fact that the form was in vogue in ancient Kamrup from as early as the middle of the 7th�century. He asserted that though the art form had been established as one of the most ancient forms, it received its pride of place only in the days of Sankardev and that it was given a religious perspective by the latter.

Speaking about the famous �Brindavani Bastra�, created under the supervision of Sankardev, which is 180 feet in length and 90 feet in breadth, Patnaik termed it as a most wonderful creation of the world in artistic creativity.

The Governor also said that it was for the first time in the world that Sankardev staged musical dramas or �Bhaona��at Bardowa by using symbolic art forms in the form of drop screens and masks where �tula pat��or �sanchi pat��were used.

Speaking about the second book, Patnaik said that Govinda Nayak�s, Sankar Gosain Charit was originally written in Oriya language in the Brojaboli script. He said that it was the only book in the Oriya language on Sankaradeva and that it depicted several incidents of the Guru�s tenure at Puri in vivid detail. He added that by bringing out this book in Assamese, Narayan Chandra Goswami had done a great service to the people of Assam.

Besides other dignitaries, the meeting was also attended and addressed by Dr. Birendra Nath Dutta, Dr. Lakshmi Nandan Bora, Dr. Keshaba Nanda Deva Goswami and Dr. Hemoprabha Saikia.
