Bhuyian's literary aptitude includes the creation of interest in Assamese history among the masses providing accurate climate for historical research in Assam and circulation of the Assamese past beyond the geographical confinements. Assam as a geographical unit with a distinct linguistic and cultural heritage within India was first projected and portrayed far and wide in India and abroad by Surya Kumar Bhuyan. He observes, "The most curious thing about Assam is the conspicuous ignorance about it on the part of my countrymen in India and my fellow mortals in other parts of the world." His love for Assam has been reflected time and again in his mission to make Assam and the Assamese people familiar beyond Assam.
Surya Kumar Bhuyan (1894-1964) published his collection of poems Nirmali in 1918. Dr. Bhuyan is at the most a nature poet. Some of his nature-lyrics do have a searching appeal. In the poem Saundajya, nature in her twilight beauty is portrayed as a maiden against the sky. Prakritir santan is a myth poetic description of a child who is raised in nature's harmony. In Sukhdukh, he rejects the pessimistic view of life. He displays interest in history and antiquarian studies due to which his verse occasionally tends towards a delayed pseudo-Sanskrit style. Joymaii upakhyan (1923) is written under a pseudonym, Bhanunandan. Dr. Bhuyan is sincere in his romantic emotions which are evident in his poems like Apon sur, Utala, Tipam deka, Asam gaurov and so on. Utala possesses rapid animation. The poet is not deficient in lyrical passion.
One can hardly count the waves of an ocean, so it is to narrate all the achievements of a personality like Surya Kumar Bhuyan. Assam
came out of her marginalised position and her past started to penetrate into the study of non-Assamese intellectuals of India and abroad under him. The mission of cultural grants and obtain inaugurated by Prof Surya Kumar Bhuyan established the pillars of a new Assam which is a concoction of national, regional and global perspective. In today's global society Surya Kumar Bhuyan's ideology remains as the real pathfinder for a balanced social structure with a proper national, local and global network.
