Remains of Spring: A Naga Village in the No Man's Land

Jibon Krishna Goswami (Author) Manjeet Baruah (Translator)

An idyllic Naga village surrounded by misty hills, Hoyat is located in the No Man’s Land between India and Burma. When Atanu reaches here to begin a new life, he is stunned to see the entire village burnt down. Life in this war zone is a ceaseless cycle of resurrection from the ashes. Yet its people dream and hope.

With his own past buried under layers of darkness, Atanu’s quest to build a life of consequence encounters an abrupt turn of events in Hoyat. Will he survive in this ravaged land where the danger of an impending war is as sure as fate? Will he be able to plumb the mysterious depths of Imli Apa, a Naga revolutionary? Will Hoyat accept him as one of its own?

Translated from the popular Assamese novel Aoleangar Jui, Remains of Spring is a riveting story set in the 1990s where love, life, and hope are constantly pitted against the daunting realities of politics, pain and space.
