Product description


‘One distinctive character of the narrative that lends so much charm to the book is the masterly use of analogies and imageries that places the paperback in the league of classics… Anil Yadav’s observations are original and impeccable and his study vast but credit must also be given to Anurag Basnet to be able to remain so true to the original.’—The Free Press Journal

‘The book, superbly translated from Hindi by Anurag Basnet, is both a confirmation of the stories we sometimes come across in national dailies and a plea to “mainland” India to take cognizance of its forgotten citizens.’—The Indian Express

‘Once in a while comes a gritty specimen of non-fiction that commands your undivided attention. Anil Yadav’s Is That Even A Country, Sir! Journeys in Northeast India by Train, Bus and Tractor is such a book.’—The Tribune

‘…a phenomenally engaging account of both, the land as well as the ethnic people of Northeast.’—The Tribune

‘With a racy pace and translation as good as the original language by Anurag Basnet, the book undulates through politics, history, myths, ethnic plurality and ecological wonders, through a multitude of voices.’—The Tribune


‘By unveiling the Northeast both in intense detail and in its most essential form, Anil Yadav has given readers the ability to see India in its widest breadth … Journeying over difficult roads, Anil has brought together information and knowledge, adventure and narrative, storytelling and reportage to fashion a unique travelogue.’
—Gyanranjan, editor, Pahal

‘A gripping and informative book; it reminded me of the old travel memoirs which I have read—Papillon with its indomitable protagonist Henri Charrière … Mohan Rakesh’s Aakhri Chattan Tak … and the works of [Rahul Sankrityayan].’
—Rajendra Yadav, Hans

‘Anil Yadav very effectively communicates the grief, oppression, infiltration, the politics of migration, governmental neglect and militancy of the Northeast … This book is an important reminder that the Northeast is a wounded part of independent India and any attempt to heal it needs an iron will.’
