The term North East is a form of geographical linguistic and ethnic stereotyping that clubs together eight disparate, often misunderstood sister states comprising of Assam. Meghalaya. Nagaland, Arunachal Pradesh, Tripura, Manipur, Mizoram and Sikkim that happen to lie in the Northeastern periphery of the Indian union.

North-East India is an under represented region in many ways. The troubled political climate, the beautiful landscape and the confluence of various ethnic groups perhaps and given rise to a body of writings that is completely different from the rest of India. Some of the most interesting Indian writing in English today is coming from this region.

The present anthology, Exploring North East Indian Writings in English in English, Volume II, is a sincere attempt to evaluate some prominent literary figures of North East Indian Literature in English. It includes more than ten in depth critical essays on some of the latest perspectives of the region by eminent scholar of the country. There are references to many other writers as well in the process of discussion.
