Balairam Senapati-Brief Life Sketch

Balairam Senapati was a devotee of Tiwa culture and a well-established writer. He was born on March 3, 1931, in the village of Barpujiya in Nagaon district. His father’s name was Bagaram Senapati and his mother’s name was Padmeshwari Bardoloi. After completing his primary education in Barpujiya L. P. and M. V. schools, he took his secondary education at Nagaon Government High School. Due to financial constraints, he did not complete his high school education. Then to overcome the financial difficulties of the family he took the job of a teacher at Barthal Middle English School and served there from 1953 to 1963. At that time, he wrote an article entitled ‘What Has Happened in the Mikir Hills’ and published it in the ‘Ramdhenu’. For writing this article, the government discharged him from his job and later he concentrated on agriculture

Balairam Senapati was interested in the study of literature and culture since his student days. In order to practice and disseminate the culture and musical instruments of the Tiwas, he undertook a systematic practice of them. The notation of his Tiwa folk song is an excellent example of this. He took the special initiative in the formation of ‘Tiwa Krishti Santha’ for the preservation of the unique culture of the Tiwa people. He was instrumental in establishing the Tiwa language. Senapati wrote most of his books in Assamese. In 1954, Senapati wrote and published a book of songs called ‘Mukul’. His essay on the ‘Rati Sewa’ of the Tiwas published in ‘Ramdhenu’ drew the attention of the contemporary Assamese scholarly community at that time. In the year 2000, he decorated the seat of the president of ‘Tiwa Mathanlai Takhra’ i.e. ‘Tiwa Sahitya Sabha’. His most notable literary works are )‘In Search of the Past’ (1997, ‘A Little Focus on Lalung Folklore in the Panchorjiya Region’ (1998), ‘A Focus on the Culture of the Tiwa People, Tiwa Society and Culture’ (2000). 

In recognition of his outstanding contributions to the field of literature, the Government of Assam offered him a literary pension in 1991. In addition, he was awarded ‘Dr. Surya Kumar Bhuyan Banta’ and ‘Bakul Ban Banta’ in the same year as a devotee of folk culture in Assam.
