The Shadow of 'Kamakhya' is a collection of stories set in Assam. Handpicked by the author, the stories are invested with a wealth of detail, which evoke a feel of the region.
The themes explored, however, are wide-ranging — the pain of thwarted passion, blighted hopes, the struggle for existence — and they transcend the ambience with ease.

The stories are characterized by an unusual sensitivity and a felicity of expression, which at times borders on the poetic. Translating them is no mean feat. But the translators have been successful in capturing much of the intensity of the originals.

Contents

The Journey
The Offspring
The Empty Chest
Under the Shadow of Kamakhya
