Isolated Lands & Their Gentle Women

Kalaprapoorna Varalakshmi Janapathy (Author)
Synopsis Isolated Lands and their Gentle Women is a work depicting the life pattern of Women in the seven sister Status of North-Eastern India as well as State of Sikkim. This is a travelogue, giving a description of the mythological and historical background of different sects living together, though in isolation, till recently, Interviews with eminent personalities (commoners as well as professionals) depict the tendencies, in the minds of the people and stresses on the changing patterns of living in tune with modernism. Yogini Tantra says A Nyatra Virala Devi Kama Rupa Grihe. Which when translated means “there is a Devi in every home in the realm of Kamarupa.” And it is this wonderful concept that gives their magnificient lands a universal outlook. It is a real conglomeration of different cultures and it is the role of women as an economic partner in all endeavours of man that keeps her on light pedestal. No false values of Life anywhere, and the feudal concept of landlordism or preservation of wealth is just not there. They work, earn and live peacefully and in simple dignity. Nobody is either poor or rich economically, but rich in thought and grand in glory.

It is a beautiful land where nature presents itself in it’s pristine glory. This book will be of special appeal to tourists and first time visitors to the region, written as it is by one, who was herself smitten by the charm of the “seven sister” on her very first visit.
