Answer :

It was only with the coming of the missionaries that the first printed book entered Assamese literary circles. The first printed book was the New Testament (Dharmapustakar Antobhag) printed by William Carey in 1813 with the help of Atmaram Sharma. Orunodoi was the first Assamese magazine, printed by the Baptist Missionary Press in Sibsagar published in January 1846. Jonaki Era, Age of Romanticism in Assamese Literature Jonaki era is also known as the age of Romanticism in Assamese literature. The Jonaki magazine, published by “probashi” Assamese students in Calcutta, was its result. The nation develops only when the language develops was the slogan of the early Assamese intelligentsia. Thus a committee was set up for the development of Assamese language and literature. For that purpose it strives to preserve the old Assamese texts available, to translate different important books from Sanskrit and other languages into Assamese which are not available in the mother tongue.
