Chandradhar Barua (1874-1961) is remembered for his kavyas like Meghnad badh, Kamrup Jiyari and so on. He is remembered as a satirist. Many of the poems are an attack on orthodoxy. However he makes no attempt to impart moral lessons. He gives a social background to some satirical portraits neatly etched by him. He was known as a romanticist. His fame rests on his love lyrics.

. He stands spiritually and temperamentally apart. His satire is sharp.
