  • Description

    This book is a collection of short stories that are based on the lives of the people in the North East region of India.

    Summary of the Book

    This book provides readers a different perception of the North East region in India. It gives us a larger picture and historical details of the life during the British rule, the world wars, missionaries and converting people to Christianity. Their world is filled with the presence of folklore and belief in the supernatural. In all of these stories, we can see the political and social unrest that were a major part of the people’s lives. Read about the girl who dreams of being a firebird one day, and the man who can shift his shape to that of a tiger.

    Not recommended at all

    Book price mentioned on Flipkart was more than the printed price. No problems with the book itself. Avoid the seller.
