A literary festival of 100 languages in the heartland of BTR in Kokrajhar, Assam, is going to be organized from 14th November to 16th November. A great initiative by Hon'ble CEM Pramod Boro. 16th November Foundation Day Celebration of Bodo Sahitya Sabha.

The Bodo Sahitya Sabha promotes the Bodo language and Bodo literature. It was founded under the presidency and leadership of Joy Bhadra Hagjer, at Basugaon, in the district of Kokrajhar, Assam on 16 November 1952. It consisted of representatives of Assam, West Bengal, Meghalaya, Nagaland, Tripura, and Nepal abroad.

After India obtained independence, a critical mass of Bodo intellectuals realized the need for the preservation of the Bodo language. Many early Bodo authors studied in schools and colleges, where the medium of instruction was either Assamese or Bengali. Bodo intellectuals felt that the Bodo language must be preserved and developed at par with Assamese and Bengali languages. Bodo people realized very late that education was the key component to the overall development of Bodo people and their language. 

After the prolonged struggle and determination of the Bodo Sahitya Sabha (Bodo Literary Organization), the Bodo language was introduced as a medium of instruction at the primary level in 1963 and then at the secondary level in 1968. Bodo language and literature have been recognized as one of the Major Indian Languages (MIL) in Gauhati, Dibrugarh, and North-Eastern Hill Universities. In 1985, Bodo has been recognized as an associated state official language of Assam.

Now the language has attained a position of pride with the opening of the Post-Graduate Courses in Bodo language and literature in the University of Gauhati in 1996 and in Bodoland UniversityKokrajhar. Moreover, under the aegis of the Commission for Scientific and Technical terminology, the HRD Ministry, the Govt. of India, the Bodo Sahitya Sabha is preparing more than forty thousand scientific and technical terms in Bodo language. 

Further, it is promised, the Sahitya Academy would accord Bhasa Salman(respect for language) to the Bodo language and literature as an initial token of full-fledged recognition to it. Furthermore, the Govt. of India, in principle, has recognized the necessity of the inclusion of the Bodo language and literature in the Eighth Schedule of the Constitution of India.

The Eighth Schedule to the Constitution of India lists the official languages of the Republic of India. At the time when the Constitution was enacted, inclusion in this list meant that the language was entitled to representation on the Official Languages Commission and that the language would be one of the bases that would be drawn upon to enrich Hindi and English, the official languages of the Union. The list has since, however, acquired further significance. 

The Government of India is now under an obligation to take measures for the development of these languages, such that they grow rapidly in richness and become effective means of communicating modern knowledge. In addition, a candidate appearing in an examination conducted for public service is entitled to use any of these languages as the medium in which he or she answers the paper.
