GUWAHATI, Nov 20 - Playwright, ex-chief general secretary of Asam Sahitya Sabha and present head of the Dept of Philosophy, Cotton University, Dr Jagadish Patgiri has made a modern presentation of Srimanta Sankaradeva’s famous work Chihnajatra.
According to Dr Lakshmi Nandan Bora, who released the book at a function here recently, the unique project of Dr Patgiri is a mirror of Sankaradeva’s famous drama and literary work. It has added a new vibrancy to the modern platform of Assamese literature, he said.
Prof Poona Mahanta said that just like Sankaradeva’s original work Chihnajatra is unique, its presentation in a new format by Dr Patgiri is also unique. He said the work is not only significant in Assamese literature and drama, but will also reach out to the Indian literary field.
Former Asomiya Pratidin editor Haider Hussain said Dr Patgiri’s work is a successful project in literature.
