Omed W. Momin was born in 1832 at a tiny hamlet of Watrepara situated atop a hill overlooking Rajasimla village. From his young days, he was “the natural leader, impetuous and forceful.” Though he was born in the wild, he became interested in reading and writing as he visited the nearby market where he found a government interpreter speaking fluent Bengali. Omed, being the older of the two and under his status as the uncle, was always ever caring and loving towards his nephew Ramke. Under the British discipline, he was such a thoroughly honest, sincere, bold sepoy while at Guwahati. God chose him for His cause and gave life.
