Description

This collection of twenty Assamese Stories was translated into English in a four-day translation workshop in Guwahati under the aegis of the Sahitya Akademi and the direction of acclaimed writer and scholar Dr Hiren Gohain (Former Dean, Arts Faculty, Gauhati University and recipient of the Sahitya Akademi award for literary criticism in Assamese in 1989) in December, 2006.

These stories, by authors ranging from pioneer Lakshminath Bezbarua to elder contemporary Harekrishna Deka, have been translated by a team of enterprising young translators. A thoughtful and analytical introduction on the background, themes and trends, has been contributed by Dr Hiren Gohin as the editor of this volume.
