Gohin Biya Naam’s are especially old story-centric. Here the Namoti’s (singers) tell the old love stories of Rama-Sita, Rukmini-Krishna through their songs.
But on the other hand, ‘Ruchipurna’ Biya Naam’s are not like old story-centric. Therefore these ‘Ruchipurna’ geet’s are also called as ‘Jura Naam’.
Through these Jura Naam’s, the Namoti’s try to show the love between new bride and brome through their joke centric songs.
An example of Biya Naam (In the Assamese language): –
“Aam mole thupa-thupi, kadam mole haali
Beir majot podma jole, meghe dhale pani.”
