Of the other dramas of the period, mention may be made of Phalguyatra by Yadumanideva, Subhadra harana by Ramadeva, Kumara harana by Rucideva, Sita harana, Durvasa bhanjana and Balicalana by Gopala and Sindhuyatra by Purnakanta. Phalguyatra states the story of Krishna's romantic elation with the women of Vrajadhama on the occasion of Phalgutsava. This drama depicts the pictures of spraying colour on each other and making merry. The depiction of other women in the drama states the fact that Radha
is not the prime character of Assamese Vaishnava poetry or drama. It can be said that it is for the first time that Radha is introduced into Assamese Vaishnava literature through this drama, Phalguyatra. Here Radha is depicted as the prime character in that gathering of women who sprinkled coloured powder on Lord Krishna
. From the standpoint of thematic departure, this drama is significant.
