Much recommended and must read books by scholars, students, researchers, historians,......by all Chakma(Anokya,Doinakya,Tongchongya) people to know more about their history. Please download these books from the following links. All are in English. Some of them are not available but only several pages. Still one can order online and have them. I have shared their titles, authors, and years of publishing.

All these books were written in 15th, 16th, 17th, 18th and 19th century. It's rare to find any written account about #Chakma. The interesting thing is the term "Chakma" is spelled in many different ways in a hundred years ago. As example

Chacomas, Tsak-ma, Ca-ga-ma, Tsa-ka-ma as a Kingdom.
Tsakma, Chukma, Tsaks, Sak, Thek, Theiks, Thet, Khyoungtha as a tribe.
