Description

About the Book

Various racial groups living in close proximity and contributing to intricate social and cultural patterns have made Assam a land of great diversity. Its topography, a mixture of hills and plains, is equally varied. It has a rich and varied tradition of art, folk dance and oral literature, and celebrates through out the year many fairs and festival, the best known of which is Bihu. Its tribal textile designs, spear motifs and decorative articles are well known for their uniqueness. The book attempts to present a comprehensive picture of the vast treasure of folklore of this important North-Eastern Indian State.

About the Author

Jogesh Das has been a journalist and is the author of four collection of short stories and eight novels in Asamiya. He has also edited the Assam Sahitya Sabha Patrika and the Prahari for two years.

Thank you very much for the Shri Yantra with Navaratna which has arrived here safely. I noticed that you seem to have had some difficulty in posting it so thank you...Posting anything these days is difficult because the ordinary postal services are either closed or functioning weakly.   I wish the best to Exotic India which is an excellent company...
Mary, Australia
