Who is Upendranath Brahma?

Upendranath Brahma was a past president of the All Bodo Students’ Union and a Bodo social activist (ABSU).

Between 1981 and 1983, he was deputy president of the All Bodo Students Union, and from 1986 to 1986, he was president.

 

He worked for the education and well-being of the Bodo people. Under his leadership, the ABSU agreed to include political problems on its agenda in order to provide students with political maturity.

Brahma died on May 1, 1990, in Bombay, as a result of blood cancer, at the age of 34.

Brahma was posthumously awarded the title of Bodofa (Guardian of the Bodos) on May 8, 1990, in recognition of his vision and guidance.

Every year on the anniversary of his passing, which is now known as Bodofa Day, his life is commemorated.

From now on, the Assam government will mark Brahma’s birth anniversary on March 31 as Students’ Day in the state.

The government will also provide 52,000 mobile tablets to schools and Rs. 1,450 to each of 3.50 lakh pupils in the 2022-23 academic year for book purchases. CM Sarma thinks that this initiative will improve students’ learning experiences and provide them with a digital environment.

Upendra Nath Brahma, nicknamed ‘Thopen’ as a kid, grew up in poverty. He attended Dotma High School, Kokrajhar High School, and Sakti Ashram High and Trade School, among others. In 1975, Brahma completed his matriculation examination in the first division with letter grades in Mathematics.
