About the Book
If a river were to speak, it will have its say: excruciating stories of human love and strife..... the River Umkhrah that runs through Shillong speaks about Shanbor’s sorrowful drowning, about village girls who chase city experiences but/and end in tragedy, reflections upon Khasi matrilineal society that supposedly empowers women, about mothers who don’t know how to love, mothers who love their children too much, about the dark days of insurgency in 1990’s Meghalaya.
