Ankita Borgohain

Abstract


The problem of bias is fundamental at all preventing no one can teach or write history whether he is aware of it or not because history is not an exact science but interpretation of human affairs, opinions and variations of inevitable factors. Bias means having an unfair or unbalanced opinion. Since history is a subject, where people express their opinions it means we have to be very careful to watch out for bias. In regard to the trends in history writing of Medieval Assam , we find that the Buranji’s forms an important source in order to reconstruct the history of Assam, but with close analyze of this source one can from that it is too not free from bias. Therefore, this paper seeks to give an overview of the biasness in history writing where special focus has been given on the Buranji’s.
