Assamese is an eastern Indo-Aryan language spoken by about 20 million people in the Indian states of Assam, Meghalaya and Arunachal Pradesh, and also spoken in Bangladesh and Bhutan. Assamese is closely related to Bengali and Odia.
The Assamese alphabet is written with an alphabet that developed from the Gupta alphabet around 1200 AD and which closely resembles the Mithilakshar and Bengali alphabets. Assamese has a long literary tradition, and was used for edicts and other writings of medieval kings. The first printed book in Assamese was Atmaram Sarma's translation of the Bible, which published in 1813 by the Serampore English Missionary Press in Calcutta.
