India: Assamese Writer – Manikuntala Bhattacharya

my xofura on an emerging Assamese writer and why her work is worth reading. “Be it Pages Stained With Blood,The Moth Eaten Howdah Of A Tusker of Goswami,almost all her novels revolve around a specific situation with intricate deatils of history, lifestyle and mannerisms of the society that she is depicting and it is seen in most new writers in Asom the same kind of pre-occupations.As result of this they fail to tell a story unlike Ms.Goswami and ultimately end up writing a historical account or a sociological piece.”
