Not so long ago I read and reviewed a book on the post war Sri Lanka The book titled 'This Divided Island Stories from the Sri Lankan War' by Samanth Subramaniam gave me an insight into how the country is recovering post the long war and how the people who were involved in it may have had a change in their lifestyle The book made me consider myself very fortunate for having been brought up and living in such a protective setting with no clue of suffering This was emphasised yet again when I read ‘Mother Where’s My Country’ by Anubha Bhonsle where Anubha decides to look for light in the darkness of ManipurThe seven north eastern states in India have always seen a step motherly treatment both by the government and also the general public To this day I am sure than half of my friends and me cannot identify the seven states correctly on the map of India or mention their respective capitals Such is the state of awareness or actually lack of it and the state of neglect of those states Anubha draws our attention to the state of Manipur in this book and as with an accomplished journalist Anubha does it with great perfection and ensures that a little bit of the surface has been scratchedStarting with the happenings in Manipur before 1947 and the struggle around the time of India’s independence followed by the state of neglect it was in for close to three decades after independence ‘Mother Where’s My Country’ paints a vivid picture on why there are problems in the northeastern states in general and in Manipur in particular It is hard not to see how the situation in Manipur is a testimony to the state of affairs in the Northeast and how man made political disasters sometimes cost us than the natural disasters The book devotes a significant portion of its narrative to Irom Sharmila the now famous person who has been on a hunger strike for than a decade In the process of building up to why Sharmila went on a hunger strike the book dwells on the atrocities committed by the armies who were posted to counter the various terror groups and insurgent groups The fact that there is a page and a half devoted to just mentioning the names of these groups bears testimony to how fractured the space is The Armed Forced Special Powers Act AFSPA is what is supposed to ‘protect’ the state but the narrative states otherwise With some heart wrenching stories of people being affected by the various happenings in the region including the death of a teenager who had received the President’s bravery medal in the past the book definitely creates an impact on the readerWith some good research in the style of her mentor P Sainath Anubha shows that there are a lot of stories that need to told and heard And of course when one reads this book he can’t help but hope that there will soon be resolution in the area and that the people will soon lead a so called normal life There is always light at the end of the tunnel Let’s hope there’s one in the case of Manipur too This book was provided to be as a part of the Flipkart Book Review program
