Description

About the Book

Seducing the Rain God is a collection of fourteen translated short stories, originally written in Bishnupriya Manipuri. Writers from Assam, Meghalaya, Manipur and Arunachal Pradesh constitute the literary map of the somewhat secluded north-eastern part of India and provide a window to the world outside through their creations.Bishnupriya Manipuri is an Indo-Aryan language. The speakers of this language, estimated to be half a million, mainly reside in some of the north-eastern states of India (Assam, Tripura and Manipur), Bangladesh and Myanmar. Having migrated to Assam, Tripura and Bangladesh in different phases due to Burmese invasions and political unrest, the community had to struggle for ethnic identity for more than eight decades.The language, almost on the verge of extinction in the 19th century, however, with the revitalisation initiatives, has emerged as a strong voice from northeastern India.
