Krishna Priya Hazarika

Krishna Priya Hazarika was the wife of lawyer Radha Nath Hazarika. She was born in the year 1919 and spent her childhood in Kakojan town of Jorhat. Mrs. Hazarika’s parents were Mahendra Dutta and Bimala Dutta. Her primary Education was started at a very tender age and she was shining example of brilliance and sheer intelligence. However, despise her command over studies; she had to face challenges with her high school studies. At that time, Indian society under the influence of a strict social dogmas regarded education for women as a taboo. As a result even after excelling in a few classes from English 'Medium School, her educational life stopped after she had studied a few classes of English Medium, but not for long.

As they say ‘Where there is a will there is a way, "Mrs. Hazarika proved it to the dot. With utmost dedication and mending quest for knowledge, she could surpass the hurdles posed by the lack of formal Education and mastered various subjects, including Sanskrit. The fact that she was guided by eminent personalities from an early age had benefited her tremendously She explored the world of creative writing under the guidance of her elder brother Gun Govind Dutta. Likewise she was being constantly pushed to her limits by Bihagi poet Raghu Nath Choudhury. She was also privileged to have the great Kuladhar Chetia closer to her home. Such great souls helped to broaden her views. She was infected by the writing bug at such an age when other children of her age were busy playing ‘hide & Seek’. Krishna Priya delivered some amazing literary piece which got rare reviews. A huge number of pieces Women Writers of Assam (Vol-Il) are yet to be published. In 1977 her poem ‘Tumi Aparajeo’ got published in the 5"‘Sovenir, Lekhika. Mrs. Sheela Borthakur and Mrs. Mrinali Chetia were the joint editors of that edition.

A translated version of the poem is given below:-

You are not this day

Strange not quite new

You are as old as

The earth is

You are occupying your desirable

Since then in the presence of sun and moon

Same flower and fruit of a tree

Don’t make mistake of the two branches

Some strength is in the lady

You posses a kind hearted heart

Your sacrifice is much more important than that.

(You are invisible)

Another Stanza –

You are invisible

Prayed by the people of the whole world

You are mother, maid and hostess

Weaver and server you are omnipotent

You are earth

You are the creator of all

You are invisible and mysterious

Lakhika 3"‘year, Sd' edition, 1979)

Among all the books of poems published by her Jeewan ]yoti is rhyming poems.

A collection of stories ‘ Monor Bhag’ provides a hint of religious knowledge to the Indian Women. ‘Bir Hanumana’ is a book for children.

Decorated with sweet stanza mul rhymes, this book will surely tinfilfate the young minds. .

Krishnapriya felt the lack of children literature and for this mason she worked towards it. She understood what children want and succeeded. Her unpublished works include, ‘Rambhokto numan’, ‘Brajor Gopini’, ‘Shardhahjali’, ‘Sidhidata Ganesh’, 'llhutoloi Bhoi’ which are children literature. ‘Malabika’, ‘Brajor (iupini’, ‘Sonapur’ or ‘Sawpan’ are novels. Many a great personalities have praised her work on Brajor Gopini. According to her it is one of the most special novels. This novel shows lmw and why the milkrnaid Gopini would go crazy after Shree Krishna. According to her the milkmaids would fall for him and nut the other way round.

Shardhanjali is dedicated to the great personalities of Assam. It is an insight to the talents and works of the personalities of the ycntcr years. She also published a monthly magazine named 'Kalyaneef She worked with utmost care and made ‘Kalyanee’ complete and beautiful magazine, however, after 3 years of handwork the publication had to be halted due to the scarcity of funds. She was deeply hurt at the indifferent attitude of the readers Women Writers of Assam (Vol-II) towards this complete women’s’ magazine. Editing a magazine is a huge responsibility and grueling work, and she was brave to accept this challenge.

Krishna priya was related with innumerable socio-cultural programmers all around Jorhat. She was associated with Sadou Axom Lekhika Samaroh’ from the time of its birth in 1997. She donated a pair of high end sewing machines towards Jorhat Mahila Sammittee. In the company of Charu Bharali, Malavika Goswami and the wife of late Kuladhar Chaliha, she implemented numerous constructive ideas, which include establishment of a women’s association. She added colors to the editor’s post of ‘Kalyan Sangha’ and proved her mettle as the president of the Jorhat Mahila Sangha. Till now, she is sincerely associated with quite a few associations.

She was the only child of her family and she was a multi faceted personality. She was an expert in knitting, weaving and various handicrafts. She used to wear self made clothes only. Even at the time of the rise of the synthetic fabrics and when the cost of Paat and Muga was sky high, she always donned the humble Assamese ‘Riha’. The floral works on the chardoa, she wore, were second to none. The qualities and talents she was bestowed with were so great yet humble that she was a symbol of serenity and beauty of Women.

Krishna Priya was not only an influential writer but also a responsible housewife and mother. She not only kept her family rooted, but also imparted proper education to her children. Her eldest daughters Dr. Minati Hazarika, Shri Arati Hazarika and the son Shri Gokul Hazarika made commendable contributions to the Assamese literature.

For man, there is no substitute to write in order to self- express’ The was a famous saying by Krishnapriya. Amidst all the social and family ties and trouble, she lead by example, she used her pen as her sword to fight against injustice. 'Though she expressed her feelings through books, however a large number of her books are yet to see the light of the day. The books those published, swiped the minds of the readers.

She is also a great orator. Because of her thought provoking speech, she is an inseparable patt of all the meetings held in Jorhat, holding multi spectrum positions, from guest lectures to the President.

Juggling her busy schedule with her personal life, this multi- faceted lady is seventy years old at present. She looks a bit tired at the eve of her life unlike before, she can not speak at the eve of her life unlike before.

The question is whether this Warrior woman who overcame the fights of life with her selfless service, efficiency, love and respect will lose her battle with time. Only time will tell.
