HISTORY OF ASSAM

In ancient times Assam was known as Pragjyotisa and in the early medieval times it came to be known as Kamarupa. The name Kamarupa was prevalent till the consolidation of the Ahom political power towards the fifteenth century A.D.
In 1228 A.D. a section of the Tai or Shan people emerged in the eastern part of the country and gradully consolidated entire Brahmaputra valley and called it as Asama. Shan people came to be referred to as Asam, Ahom and sometimes as Acam by other people residing the country Asama. The modern Assamese word Ahom by which the Shan people are known is derived from Asam. Present day people of Assam Call themselves as Asamiya and their country as Asama. Word "Assam" is an English formation.

Assamese is the easternmost Indo-Aryan language of India, spoken by people of Assam. People of Assam Call themselves as Asamiya and their country as Asama.
Scholars have traced back the history of Assamese language and literature to the mystic songs known as Caryacarya-vinisacaya, generally known as Caryapadas or dohas, composed by the Buddhist Siddhacharyas affiliated to Sahajayana. a later development of the Mhahayana branch of Buddhism. These songs were composed between the 10th and the 12th centuries.

DARK AGES OF ASSAM
In 1826, British captured Assam and "DARK ERA OF ASSAM" started with it. In British India bengalis established themselves as the ELIGHT SECTION of British Administration. Assam was seen as the paradise and gold diggers from Bengal came to loot riches of ASSAM. Upper Class Bengalis established themselves as the Elite Section of British Administration in North India. This Elite Bengali section started looting the native people of the land wherever they were posted throughout North India.
Elite Bengalis soon filled top and mid level administrative jobs in ASSAM and started the process of looting and Subjugating the native Asamiyas (People of Assam).
