About the Book :

This collection includes 14 of a young writer’s short stories. They are the compelling tales of acute social and psychological insight, they clearly depict the lives of insignificant lots and the revelation of what they are subject to; the life caught up amid the conflicts between a virtually failed system functioning with an absurd mandate or an armed movement which sprouted with far-fetched ideas and now transformed to a mere farce. In ‘A lost Kingdom’ one can see how collective naivety is usually common and how the travellers sees this through his solitary eyes; ‘A Kanglei Life’ tells the untold story of  victims whose lives are synonymous to mere objects; ‘The Leader and his man’ relates how corrupt a place could be and how a prevalent ignorance of a people feeds malice; ‘Thoiba’ gives a detailed picture of how a young mind can be easily made a party to a crime, once stained he remains an eternal victim who shuffles between the worlds which he cannot avoid, while ‘In the City’ describes the characters, observes the places where they live with a keen eyes. 

The original stories introduce insignificant characters, capture with clarity and elegance their understanding, which otherwise would have been dismissed as mere death, human rights and poverty.
