Bhuyan, born in Majuli Konhargaon, joined the freedom struggle against the British and had to leave his home as the British government issued an arrest warrant against him. He took shelter in the house of freedom fighters Mahendra Hazarika and Priyanath Baruah of Janjhi and continued to fight for freedom against British rule. In 1983, he settled in Sivasagar and served the people as a homeopathic doctor for a long period. Bhuyan is survived by his wife, sons and daughters.
