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.

I’m very interesting in history, art and culture of India and I’m studing his civilization; so I’ve visited Rajasthan, Gujarat, Tamil Nadu and Kerala in theese years. I’m a draftwoman , so I like collect works of extraordinary arts and crafts of villages, that must be protected and helped. In a short time I’ll buy some others folk painting, as Madhubani , Kalamkari and – if it’s possible – Phad. In the meanwhile, I’m very happy to have in my home a work of your great artist. Namaste, Namaskara.
