English version of a significant novel from Assam, which won its author Sahitya Akademi award.

Set in a remote village of Assam, Pita Putra unfolds the story of two generations caught in the tumultuous wake of India's transition to Independence. Shifting between two worlds, that of the inner world of an individual trapped in a crowd going in search of a society and the outer world of events that shape the dynamics of national-building, the novel brings aloud the voice of India in a strange and irregular rhythm.

Ranjit Biswas is a freelance journalist and a noted translator.
