The book which shows the readers, the Khasi Culture is a classic collection. The language is fantastic. Authenticity of narration is the highlight of the book. The characters are realistic and close to the earth.
Due to the peculiar names and salutations, it was difficult to get the hang of it but once we gets involved in the book, we won’t be able to put it down. There is a vast difference in the lives of people that we feel like it is a story of another era.
How the nymph influence the lives of the people is interesting to see. Their innocence is heart melting.
The cover image is brilliant and justifies the mood of the book.
