Elegy for the East
Dhrubajyoti Borah in conversation with Trisha De Niyogi with insights by Atreyee Gohain and Shantana Saikia
Assam is the melting pot of cultures with a rich and diverse literary heritage. The famed Assamese writer Dhrubajyoti Borah talks about his recent Elegy for the East: A Story of Blood and Broken Dreams and his other books and writings. Rooted in contemporaneous histories and the experiences of the people, the narrative is a quest for peace in the midst of ceaseless physical and psychological warfare in conflict-torn Assam. In conversation with publisher Trisha De Niyogi, Borah talks about his books and translations and the process of self translation. He is joined by Atreyee Gohain as she shares her experience of co-translating Elegy for the East and Shantana Saikia as she shares her journey of translating this icon of Assamese literature.
