Bora was born near Pabhoi Tea Estate, near Bishwanath Chariali in 1943. He started writing dairy regularly since the time he was studing in Darrang College. Bora has been writing dairy from than till now, more than 50 years. Mentionable, in this more than 50 years period every letter-word-sentence of his dairies are in perfect form.


Bora carries his dairies wherever he goes. In fact, on his wedding day after returning from the bride’s house, he inscribed about the most important day of his life in his dairy. During last 50 years he was admitted in the hospital only for one day. On that day (14th August 2003), he filled in his dairy.
