I was very interested to read the history of your college because the italian gentleman Mr. Duchi who sold his bungalow to the college was my grandfather. My family and I are planning to visit Tezpur next March to see where my mother grew up. I wonder if you can tell me if the bungalow still exists and if so,what is the address. Yours Sincerely, Jeff Sweet. (U.K.)

I want to know about Balinarayan who was made the king of Darrang by Ahom King. He was a Barendra Brahmin. I have proof that he was powerful and was shivaet. As I have found out that last raja(10th) of Darrang was Samudranarayan. I would like to know what happened to his family after East India Company illegally annexed Darrang along with Assam in 1826. I want to know the mane of his sons. As some one said that his son was taken to Phulbari and later to Bogra now in Bangladesh and was given 12 villages. He was declared a fugitive by British when he tried to organize revolt against the British. I shall be grateful if your history department could give some authentic account of the facts. It appears that almost nothing has been written about this aggressive family. The reason is I am deeply connected to Darrang but can not establish it for one missing link i.e name of the son of samudranarayan and his grand son. aloke chakravartty

I want to solve a mystery about the later rajas of Darrang. With Balinarayana started the rule of Brahmin kings in Darrang that ended in 1826 with the expedition of British. I want some facts on it if possible.
