“The venture to reconstruct and rewrite Bodo history by deconstructing various misleading historical sources, distorted statements and opinions made by some biased scholars and historians about the historical status of Bodo people, is a Herculean task. There is a need to collect more information from various sources and compile an authentic history of our community. The process of rewriting the Bodo history has already been set in motion by scholars and experts from the community and this workshop-cum-seminar is another effort in this regard,” Bwiswmuthiary said.

“The Bodo groups with passage of time were separated, especially during colonial rule. Had the 18 duars that existed in undivided Goalpara and Jalpaiguri district not divided, the history of Bodos would have been different,” said Ghosh.
