Folk Tales, Plays and Novellas from the wingtip of India, the North East. Exciting journeys: from the depths of a well to the skies via a golden bridge, from the battles between the Japanese and the Nagas to the war between the sun and people, from insurgency in Mizoram to the pleas of a just-dead soul wishing to stay alive, from the mind of a wolf boy to the mythical account of how man first cultivated paddy.

Enchanting stories from well known writers of a little known region: Indira Goswami, James Dokhuma, Shurhozelie Liezietsu, Arun Sarma and many more, carefully and lovingly culled by the North East Writers Forum. Brought to you by Katha.
