Hariprasad Gorkha Rai, known as a prominent writer of the Avahan era, devoted himself to literary pursuits along with Dhan Bahadur Sonar and Govinda Chandra Paira. This trio was educated in Assamese medium and became involved in the study of the Assamese language and literature. In the company of Padmanath Gohainbaruah, the first president of the Assam Sahitya Sabha, ‘Gorkha’ Rai formed the Kohima branch of the Assam Sahitya Sabha in collaboration with Dhan Bahadur Sonar and Govinda Chandra Paira.
