    1. The book gives shape to the love between a man and a woman, expresses a priest’s love for his divine calling and portrays a community’s love for land, territory and for the identity drawn from its ownership. In thick jungles and barren landscapes these different loves intertwine, through events first and finally and most beautifully in essence too. For all its intricateness of poetic language, skilful narration of a thick plot and successful drawing in of the reader into its world, the narra [...]


    2. A memoir that takes you to mid-Nineteenth century Arunachal Pradesh where the Europeans were looking to enter this untouched paradise. The rest of India was preparing to overthrow Britons in Sepoy Mutiny. Arunachal was a land of tribal kingdoms of the Mishmees , Abors (now ADI) , Apatanis and the Tibetans living together in a shared heaven.This book is a tale of the very first Europeans who set foot on this land and created a conflict that lasts till date. A historical plot weaved together with [...]


    3. Mamang Dai brings history and a love story together beautifully in this novel set in the Abor and Mishmee hills of present day Arunachal Pradesh. The characters, their feelings, motivations and deepest emotions are sketched very well, although this is a novel that makes the reader work for it; it does not explain everything and Dai chooses to reveal things at her own pace. The land and landscape come alive too.I would have given it 4 stars but for some loose editing that makes parts of it a litt [...]


    4. A wonderfully poignant narrative set in the milieu of the colonization of the North Eastern parts of India in the 1850s, this book deals with the lives of the three protagonists caught bang in the middle of tectonic shifts in their lives and their faith, love, loss, longing and endurance are tested to the limits.
