Include a chapter on Lachit Borphukon in school textbooks, Himanta Biswa Sarma urges states


Assam Chief Minister Himanta Biswa Sarma has written a letter to his counterparts of other states, requesting them to include a chapter on Lachit Borphukon in the syllabus of the schools, colleges in their respective domain.

Coinciding with the 400th birth anniversary celebration of Mahabir Lachit Borphukan, recently he had written letters to the Chief Ministers of all the states of India to incorporate a chapter on the great General of Assam’s history in the school curriculum of their respective states.

Lachit is known for his legendary leadership in the 1671 Battle of Saraighat where Mughals were defeated.

The Chief Minister believes that the saga of the valour of Lachit Borphukon should spread far and wide, instilling in every Indian a sense of pride over the exploits of this great Ahom general.

The battle of Saraighat of 1671, Lachit Borphukon led his army from the front to a resounding victory, despite being terribly ill. His unflagging valour and determination ensured the culture, identity and uniqueness of the North-Eastern region remained intact.

The Chief Minister, in his letter, stated that despite being a shining example of patriotism and love for one’s motherland, Lachit Borphukon’s accomplishments remain comparatively unknown in the many parts of the country. Requesting his counterparts for inclusion of Lachit Borphukon’s history and valour in curriculum, the Chief Minister added that this would contribute to spread of patriotic ideals among the youths and inspire them to dedicate themselves to the service of the nation.
