    Description

    In Strangers Of The Mist: Tales Of War & Peace From India’s Northeast, author Sanjoy Hazarika sheds light on many issues that are currently facing the states in North Eastern India., through a collection of facts, and personal experiences.

    Summary Of The Book

    Strangers Of The Mist: Tales Of War & Peace From India’s Northeast is Hazarika’s attempt to bring awareness to a number of sensitive issues faced by Indians living in the North Eastern parts of the country. According to the author, the people and problems of that region are often overlooked and ignored.

    In this eye-opening memoir, the author presents several enlightening facts, which are virtually unknown to most citizens of this nation. For instance, Hazarika systematically presents the developments that occurred in Assam and neighbouring parts, from post Independence up to the present day. He sheds light on possible causes and factors behind ethnic clashes, separatist outbreaks, and political unrest, that is so characteristic of this region. There is also a real sense of urgency to implement “real” changes that would stop the loss of life due to drugs and violence. Hazarika also points out the issues faced with neighbouring countries such as Bhutan, Nepal, and Bangladesh. Strangers Of The Mist: Tales Of War & Peace From India’s Northeast also talks about refugees migrating from Myanmar and Bangladesh to Northeastern states like Arunachal Pradesh and Assam, which has caused tension between the many ethnicities in these states.

    Apart from presenting the problem, Hazarika also presents solutions. Without excess verbiage or complexity, and all the while maintaining a neutral position, Hazarika stresses that the time to act is now. Strangers Of The Mist: Tales Of War & Peace From India’s Northeast is arguably the best book written on the issues facing North East India thus far.

    Must read !

    It is an excellent book in every aspect. Fast paced, sticks to facts and gives a clear background before delving into complex topics. The best of the book is its structure. The author analyzes the insurgency in each state separately and links them seamlessly wherever required.
    The erudition and in-depth knowledge of the author is evident throughout the book. A must read for those who want to understand the dynamics of the north-eastern states.
