The end came for historian and social scientist at his own residence at 3-45 in the wee hours where he was keeping unwell for the last couple of weeks.

Guha, who is known for his thought provoking writings, was born in 1924 in Imphal. As soon as the sad new spread life wild fire his relatives and fans thronged his residence to pay him their last respect. 

His is known for a number of books in Assamese, English and Bangla including From Planterraj to Swaraj. 

The lifeless Guha would be taken to GMCH  as he has already donated body for research.
