Abstract

The inexorable presence of insurgency has vitiated Assam and the other North-eastern states for a long period of time; but the reality faced by the inhabitants in these areas are represented more sensibly and truthfully by the literature produced by the writers of the North-east. The paper looks at one such depiction by a young writer from Assam, Arun Kashyap in his English novel, The House with a Thousand Stories.
