Assamese (Asamiya) for all the women of Assam. They will be half the 20 million speakers to understand it. A poetry, where shines all the brilliance of their eyes. And among them, I have seen two eyes, brighter than the others. This assamese love poem is for a face and a coppery skin, a whole body draped in silks.
The Assamese, which is the official language of Assam, has its own script for writing, it differs from that of Bengali by a few letters. It is an Indo-Aryan language, one of the 14 recognized by the Indian Constitution. Not far the orya and the bengali, it uses a writing system close to the nagari. In the 15th century we find narrative poems and in the 16th Sankaradeva composes in Assamese verses the bhagavata as well some lyric poems Krisnaites. In the modern period, poetry become patriotic, mystical and lyrical.
