The poetry of Kynpham Sing Nongkynrih, while redolent of the fragrance of his native place Meghalaya, addresses themes that are universal. In this evocative collection of poems, ferocious satire jostles with wistful longing, and nostalgia for a lost way of life offers a counterpoint to the violence that is part of everyday life in that part of the country.



Author Bio: Kynpham Sing Nongkynrih writes poems and short fiction in Khasi and English. His collections of poetry in English include Moments and The Sieve. He is the author of Around the Hearth: Khasi Legends (Penguin) and the co-editor of Dancing Earth: An Anthology of Poetry from North-East India (Penguin). He has been the recipient of the first Veer Shankar Shah-Raghunath Shah National Award for literature (2008) and the first North-East Poetry Award (2004).
