The Story of Ram and Nabami

Gunabhiram Barua
Translated by Tilottoma Misra

Written in 1857, Ramnabami-Natak was the first modern Assamese play on a secular theme. The playwright, Gunabhiram Barua, drew upon certain liberal intellectual trends in contemporary Bengal to write extensively on women's education, child marriage, and polygamy.
