Auto/biographies: The Neglected Children of History.

Khirabdhi Choudhury


Auto/biographies are not accepted as the sources of history though these life writings provide some valuable information. Many historians indirectly use life writings as the sources of history. Such life writings help the historians to reach the unreached sources of history to find data. For example the autobiography of Fakir Mohan Senapati provides the real situation of the drought condition of Odisha in 1866.
