Labangalata, first published in 1939, is a historical novel. Several editions of the book appeared subsequently. It is based on the anecdotes and episodes centering around Maharaja Khagemba who reigned in Manipur during 1597-1652. in style, conception and execution,  Labangalata shows influence of Bankimchandra's novel entitled Durgeshnandani. The novelist tajes great liberty in forcing together unconnected historical incidents in order to build up a convincing plot. The imagination has a free play resulting in anachronism. The language has elements of both the Bengali and Sanskrit.
