Biggest Contribution Of Kalaguru Bishnu Prasad Rabha, a tribute through a portrait.

The pencil portrait of Kalaguru Bishnu Prashad Rabha is a pencil portrait I did, along time back. It was a problematic portrait because I failed to collect an excellent and clear high-quality picture of the maestro of my drawing due to its unavailability and copyright issues. Nevertheless, I got hold of a decent photo, which I took as a reference for this portrait. The material used: Ivory paper A3 size, 2 Staedtler 6B pencils, 1 Staedtler 2B pencil, and an eraser. The idea behind creating the portrait of such a notable person was none other than Respect. My parents taught me about Kalaguru's contributions from an early age, listening to songs on the tape recorder, watching plays. The participation of Kalaguru Bishnu Prashad Rabha imprinted the image and Respect towards him, which enabled me to complete this portrait. Bishnu Prasad Rabha, often referred to as the "Master of the Arts" or Kalaguru, was a very influential figure from Assam's Indian state. The most significant contributions of Kalaguru Bishnu Prasad Rabha were in the field of literature, art, and culture, and undoubtedly his most notable contribution was his artistic prowess, which he shared with the people of Assam. His most exceptional work, Bano Kabong, elaborately portraits the diverse life of the Assamese communities and tribes, their livelihood, and contributions to the Assamese culture. His other masterly works include Mishing Koneng, Axomiya Kristir Hamuh Abhakh, Atit Axom, and Sonpahi. Mishing Koneng meaning The Mishing Girl is the first novel written by Bishnu Prasad Rabha. It is a story of love and sacrifice and portrays the lifestyle of the coastal Mishing tribe of Assam (people living near the banks of the river). The details described in the novel showcases the things that we have lost or the sacrifices the people had to make over time. Sonpahi, a story where Bishnu Rabha makes the landless masses or the working class realize their exploitations by the landowners. Sonpahi, which is a translation of Jack Balden's "Gold Flower Story," from the book "China Shakes the World." In this story, even though this is a translation, Bishnu Rabha masterfully manages to showcase the philosophy of his concerns to the atrocities towards the womenfolk who go hand in hand with other notable struggles like the class system. The book, Axomiya Kristir Hamuh Abhakh, is a detailed description of the culture, lifestyle, music, and arts of the Assamese people, including the many hills and plain tribes. Apart from these, Bishnu Rabha painted a lot of paintings, acted in many plays, and was also a recognized film director.
