New Delhi, Nov 27 (PTI) Srimanta Sankaradeva was a religious reformer in pan-Indian context, says a new hagiography on the Assamese medieval polymath which describes how he did not restrict his reform activities to Assam alone but carried out all over 'Bharatavarsha'.

In "Srimanta Sankaradeva in all-India Perspective", author Sanjib Kumar Borkakoti explores the contributions of the saint to the nation and tells how his message was well received outside Assam.

According to the author, Sankaradeva was a Bharatiya by heart and one has to understand the concept of Bharatavarsha to understand his Bharatiya status.
