Novels Theme of Mr Lahary: Critical Study
Abstract: Monoranjan Lahary is a popular name of Bodo literature. As a novelist, he observes the society very carefully and he tries to portray the realities of villagers and villages in his novels. He selects real stories of Bodo villagers and uses simple words which common people use in daily conversation. He always avoids the artificial words. His narration, method, technique are always simple and he links it to play in novel. Though Bodos are the first indigenous community of Assam (India), they do not remain in a particular place for long time. They move here and there like other tribal communities. Dark clouds of superstition, ignorance, witchcraft are prevented the Bodo society from further development. Lahary gives importance on education for all round development of Bodo society. In this way, he tries to give a right path to the society through his novels.
