Description

This novel presents a deeply sympathetic picture of the immortal love of a Miri couple. In its passionate intensity, the story of Panei and Jonki is reminiscent of the tales of Romeo and Juliet, Heer-Ranjha and Hero and Leander.

It is a love story. The story is simply told, in the first person narrative, and the writers' sympathy for the star-crossed lovers is amply evident. The story has been presented in the social background of the Miris of the late nineteenth century. The community at that time, like many other communities of Assam then, was not much advanced socially, but it has made rapid strides in educational and social fields ever since, particularly after independence.

THE TRANSLATOR:

P KOTOKY is a retired professor of English of Gauhati University, Assam. He is the author of a number of books and has translated ten works, both from Assamese into English and from English into Assamese.

It is a precious piece, a real pearl of literary creation, and shall ever endure as a classic of true love.
