Book Review :: 'Ri - Homeland of Uncertainity' By Paulami Duttagupta

Book Review (Part of Book Club blog tours)
Ri- Homeland of Uncertainty is adapted from the National Award Winning Khasi film by the same name. 

Trapped in the limbo between ideology and conscience, Manaba finds him himself part of a terror outfit. An unexpected opportunity, anger, squalor and disillusionment - followed by and armed combat and injury lead to soul-searching that form the substance of this moving tale.

My Review:
Ri-Homeland of Uncertainty is a fast, crisp and well written story about rebellion and conflict, set in Meghalaya, symbolic of all regional conflicts in India. The misguided youth feels that the nation doesn’t do anything for them, and their state, if run as an independent country would fair better. The title is apt for the myriad emotions playing in the minds of various characters.

The story is about a terrorist group planning an attack in Shillong around the Independence day, and how police officer SP Kyndiah tracks them down. Manbha is one of the protagonists and a rebel, who has been tasked to lead the mission. Emika’s character is mature and impressive.

Year 2014: Discovered Passion

Image courtesy
The year 2014 was a happening year, as any year is… the family was in good health, there were some career progression, a few personal targets were achieved, on the down side I gained a few kilos instead of losing them, why let’s see…

Year 2013 left a void in my life when my elder one left the nest, and joined college. After months of pre-occupation with board exams, the entrance exams and the admissions, I was left with nothing to think or aim at.

I have always been reading… and reading a lot. My mother used to threaten that she would burn my books and my husband is still jealous of the time I am with books. But, how many books one can read without any real work?

It was then someone suggested writing. Being a process consultant I know there are many books, in fact good books in the field of process consulting. So non-fiction was a no-no. It was then my jealous husband said, why don’t you write fiction, since you relish them so much?
