The North East Is A Mystery To Readers, Basic Unfamiliarity Compounded By A Paucity Of Written Material On The Region. Lands Of Early Dawn: North East Of India Seeks To Redress The Balance, Journeying Into The Heart Of The Region, Painting Scenes Of Breathtaking Natural Beauty Which Are Juxtaposed With An Earnest Concern With The Hopes Of The People And Their Trials. Winter Mists In Mizoram, Pine And Fir Shrouded Walks Of Meghalaya, Assam'S Silver Girded Rail Bridges And Shimmering Fishing Nets---The Narrative Is Threaded With Brilliant Images, With Glimpses Into The Region'S History And Social Structures. Romesh Bhattacharji Writes With Involvement, Bringing Into Focus Issues Urgently In Need Of Address, Notably The Depleting Forest Cover, The Uncertainty And The Unrest In The Area. Informative, Stimulating, Lands Of Early Dawn Is A Significant Contribution To Literature On A Little-Explored Terrain. Romesh Bhattacharji, Currently Commissioner Of Customs In Amritsar, Has Been Visiting The North East Since 1984 And Has Lived In Shillong From 1985 To 1991. He Has Visited Nearly All The Towns And Villages That Are Linked By Motorable Roads And Even Those That Could Be Reached Only By Air.
