It began as a travelogue narrating the wanderings of three young men in the tense, forested heartland of Chhotonagpur in early 1990s. Looking back, it has turned out to be a site of buried memories, personal and collective – of famine, Partition, Naxalite movement in 1970s, and the shadows and echoes of a lost era. Fashioned out of diverse materials that include memoirs, gazetteers, a journal and vintage photographs, this book inhabits the unclassifiable and provocative space between history and fiction, autobiography and narrative non-fiction. Reading it is like stepping into the unsettling three-dimensional world of an art installation.

History looked at freshly
Evocative,nostalgic, thought provoking.... compelling you to dig deeper and do some research, even if it’s only with the help of google.Ended up asking a lot of questions to the seniors in my extended family.Superb. I only hope it never goes out of print.... have a lot of gifting to do Review by Mou / (Posted on 6/13/2020)
