WHERE THE SUN RISES WHEN SHADOWS FALL: THE NORTH-EAST
WHERE THE SUN RISES WHEN SHADOWS FALL: THE NORTH-EAST
Description
From the Jacket:

For mosdt people living in India, little is known about the North-east, its myriad cultures and value system. This book paints a broad canavas by introducing readers to the rich cultural heritage and history of the states; the outstanding modern poetry from this region, acknowledged to be among the best from India; and the dual or plural identities which have led to the immense crisis of political development.

Over thirty leading personalities, most of them from the Nort-east, have contributed to this volume essays, oral narratives, poems, interviews, and around 40 photographs.

Oral narratives from eight states including Sikkim, evoke a world in harmony with nature. This idyllic image is juxtaposed with impassioned, pungent, and sardonic poetry, which expresses the pain and brutality of political oppression. The cultures of these different states are also shown experiencing transformations in social values, beliefs, and lifestyles, as they adapt to radical changes.

Three cogent essays deal with political turmoil - partly engendered by a 'mindset' leading to a conflict of loyalties between the state and the country. The Brahmaputra becomes a metaphor for destruction and survival.

This book is enriched by two interviews held with luminaries: Indira Goswami speaking with candour about negotiating on behalf of the ULFA; and Ratan Thiyam speaking on bringing the aesthetics of his repertory theatre group based in Manipur to performances worldwide, investing the local Manipur language and culture with universal significance.

This poignant and gripping account of the North-east and it cultures, will deepen readers' understanding of this little-known part of India, especially scholars of anthropology, cultural studies, and literary culture, as well as general audiences.

Hello, Just a short feedback on your new website layout: the old one was better than most of what you come across on the www, but you've managed to make it even better. I very much like the new look of the book pages and 'my gallery' pages. Thanks again for offering me a look inside the books. It's a big help for finding out if it's really what I want. Everything is perfect: the presentation of the items, your way of handling the orders, and the fast and always diligently packed parcels. Thanks to all at Exotic India, Walter

Exotic India is a fine organization to do business with. I have had the best trading experience and the very best customer service. The communication I have had with Vipin K. is of the highest quality; my questions and requests were quickly and professionally answered and fulfilled. A special thanks to the artist Kailash Raj for the beautiful art he produces; I have certainly been enriched by the way his art exemplifies the stories they tell. Many Thanks to all concerned.
W. J. Barnett, USA
My beautiful shawl arrived today. Thank you so much for this lovely shawl. Really, it is nicer than the photograph. I hope you and yours have a very Happy New Year and much prosperity in the New Year. With gratitude
Tom Anderson, Canada
An excellent website, as always. I do not even mention its content, which is beautiful beyond words, but I am merely referring to the great functionality and optimal design of your website. Links always work, the information is accurate and complete, images are very clear, including scanned content of your books. A pleasure to purchase from you.
Oreste, USA
I just wanted to extend my profound thanks to you for expediting my order. It was so well packaged and all import processes taken care of so the beautiful statue arrived in fabulous condition. It looks truly wonderful and I am so happy to have Lord Ganesh take pride of place in my home. Thank you again for your superb service. Best regards
