Description
Back of the Book

Sahitya Akademi intended, form its very beginning to make available to the general as well as to the students of literature standard histories of literature in various languages of india. The present volume belongs to it. The contribution of Assamese known as Pragjyotisa in the epic age to the Indian literature is quite considerable though very little of it is known to non-Assamese reading public. In this volume the history of Assamese literature has been penned with an erudite verve.

Madhu, USA
I love your site and although today is my first order, I have been seeing your site for the past several years. Thank you for providing such great art and books to people around the World who can't make it to India as often as we would like.

I ordered Padmapani Statue. I have received my statue. The delivering process was very fast and the statue looks so beautiful. Thank you exoticindia, Mr. Vipin (customer care). I am very satisfied.
Hartono, Indonesia
Very easy to buy, great site! Thanks
Ilda, Brazil
Our Nandi sculpture arrived today and it surpasses all expectations - it is wonderful. We are not only pleasantly surprised by the speed of international delivery but also are extremely grateful for the care of your packaging. Our sculpture needed to travel to an off-lying island of New Zealand but it arrived safely because of how well it had been packaged. Based upon my experience of all aspects of your service, I have no hesitation in recommending Exotic India.
