Product description


• “The book is leavened with humour. The faultlines between the two communities, Khasi and Bengali, are delineated in superb set pieces that bring out the incomprehension on both sides about the Other’s way of life.” – The Hindu Literary Review


'• “Choudhury’s versatile style, his facility at characterization, the evocation of a beautiful hill town, and skillful inter-weaving of comic, serious, dark situations, makes him a winner on each count. Shillong Times is a literary multi-course buffet where every dish presents a different flavor yet each contributes to making the spread a highly satisfying meal.” – Open Road Review

• "[The author's] command over his craft shines through" - The Sunday Tribune

• "A brilliant novel with a layered complexity of how human relations can be polarized consciously on ethnic lines, but how, more significantly the world of friendship and love acts as an antidote" - The Shillong Times


'• "Superb with its delightful fusion of style and content." - Kitaab.org


'• “Humour transcends into profound insight of the lives and times in Shillong during the 80s” – North East Now


'• “Every chapter unfolds a new dimension to the story, which makes the book even more interesting. Seeing it form every person’s perspective and narrating the tale in closest reality possible, the author has done a fabulous job by not breaking the flow at any given point. Till the very last page, Shillong Times remains a story of everyone.” - Free Press Journal

‘ Nilanjan’s command over his craft shines through.’—The Tribune ·

‘ Shillong Times is a deft interweaving of fact and fiction, childhood fantasy, history (the partition of the country) and contemporary politics. But more significantly the ‘telling’ of the tale is superb where there is delightful fusion of style and content peppered of course with infantile humour.’—The Shillong Times

Set in the volatile times of the 1980s—in the backdrop of communal tension between the Khasis and Bengalis—the novel begins on a highly promising note. It delves into the heart of the matter right from the first sentence, and is, thereafter, viewed, written and experienced from the lens of a 14-year-old who doesn’t quite understand racial divides.’—Indian Express


‘About “residents”, “outsiders” and whose right it is to live in a particular place, this is also the moving story of friendship that transcends all barriers. With humour and profound insight, Choudhury marches his characters straight into the reader’s heart.’—Hansda Sowvendra Shekhar
