This book, a compilation of Bodo short stories by eleven renowned Bodo fiction writers, represents the trends in modern Bodo fiction, particularly during the last few decades. The stories anthologized here are widely acclaimed by Bodo readers and critics alike. They reflect the day-to-day struggles of the Bodos, basically a simple and ingenuous tribe.

The stories incorporated in the book are widely acclaimed by Bodo readers and critics alike. Abari, the first printed Bodo short story by Ishan Mushahary is also included. These stories are considered representative pieces of modern Bodo fiction. Younger writers are deliberately left out as they are yet to take a definite shape.
