About Anundoram Borooah:

This article will be not completed if I will not introduce you to the eminent scholar of all times Anundoram Borooah (in Assamese it is আনন্দৰাম বৰুৱা). Assam Govt. brings justice to this award scheme by naming it on Anundoram Baruah.

Student read this carefully, Anundoram Borooah was the first Assamese and the fifth Indian to join the Indian Civil Service

Early Life and Career: This eminent scholar born at Rajaduar, North Guwahati on the 21st of May 1850. He did his school education from the Guwahati Government Seminary (now known as the Cotton Collegiate School), passed the Entrance Examination of Calcutta University in 1864, and joined the Presidency College.

He graduated in 1869 and topped in the examination held by the College to select candidates for studies in England. He arrived in England in the spring of 1869. He was selected for the Indian Civil Service in 1872. He served in many capacities in Assam and the undivided Bengal.

Anundoram Borooah’s Work: He published some important and rare Sanskrit classics such as Mahavircharita, Saraswatikanthabharna and Namalinganusasana, along with his own commentaries, noted among them being Janakiramabhashya. His other works include Bhavabhuti and His Place in Sanskrit Literature and Ancient Geography of India.

He started the compilation of the English Sanskrit Dictionary from 1873-74 and completed the same in 1877. Anundoram, also known as Assamese Amarsingha, for having mastered Amarkosa (a thesaurus in Sanskrit) at an early age of fourteen, planned his magnum opus in twelve volumes on Sanskrit Grammar, an enterprise more arduous and prodigious than undertakings of any other scholar of his time. Two of the volumes, which alone he could bring out before his demise, were devoted to prosody and lexicography (the activity or occupation of compiling dictionaries) and draw out the admiration of Max Muller.

About the Project ARBAS:

Anundoram Borooah Award Scheme was first introduced by Govt of Assam, in 2005. This prestigious award was given to the outstanding students securing First Division in the board examination like HSLC, High Madrassa, and FM Examinations conducted by SEBA and State Madrassa Education Board, Assam. At the early stage, people believe that it is a political tactic of Govt, but soon it became the famous and trending scheme for Matric students in Assam. Also, tremendous support is given by parents and teachers.

Under the ARBAS, the admirable students were felicitated with the Anundoram Borooah Certificate along with a personal computer. Also, students get the alternative to have money instead of the PC as a scholarship. The outcome of this award scheme is that it increases the competitive spirits among the Class 10 students. You can also refer the list given at the FAQ Section below and understand the increasing growth.

Soon after 2005, the scheme continues to the next year and so on distribution goes on throughout the State to date. Personal Computers become more compact and finally, the laptop is on-trend.
