Life beyond violence, vendetta

There is more to life than just violence and vendetta. Even in the time of insurgency. At least that's the catch-line for Birendra Kumar Bhattacharyya's book "Love in the Time of Insurgency''.

A translated version of "Yaruingam'', one of the most celebrated books by this famous Assamese author, "Love in the Time of Insurgency'' raises questions that are relevant even today.

Set in Nagaland during World War II, the book leads you through the ruthless battlefields of the China-Burma-India theatre of the war and its aftermath.

And for enthusiastic bookworms, Katha has organised a discussion on the book as part of its formal release at Full Circle in Greater Kailash Part-I in New Delhi. The book will be released by the well-known author Indira Goswami. She will also read a passage from the book.

This will be a followed by a discussion on the book between Dr. Deepshikha Manhanta Bortamuly, a lecturer at Daulat Ram College of Delhi University, and Manjeet Barauh, a research scholar.

"We have organised this as a tribute to Birendra Kumar Bhattacharya who is a Jnanpith and Sahitya Akademi awardee. He was a foremost literary figure in Assam. This book raises issues that are pertinent even today -- about problems in Nagaland. -- Anjali Dhal Samanta
