I was a little skeptical about reading a book about Northeast India where I am from written by an outsider of the region let alone an army kid because I feel like mainlanders have a tendency to paint us in bad light violent ethno centric primitive or as stereotypes talented musicians drugees without trying to understand our culture and historical background But I was surprised by how much I actually ended up enjoying and learning from this book Avanlok claims that he loves NE India and I believe him; I felt his interest in the region was genuine and he presented objective and well researched accounts that weren't disparaging towards the communitiespeople he wrote about whether its the militants or the army or the people of NE in general He relies on facts and lays them out for you to draw your own conclusions He is also honest and writes very well so the subject matter and the honest writing makes for a very informative and interesting read It is great fodder for a mini series However I wouldn't recommend this book as a starting point for anyone who wants to learn about the conflicts in NE India There is hardly any mention of the United Liberation Front of Assam ULFA once the biggest insurgent group in the NE or any localcivilian perspective on the issues 'In Pursuit of Conflict' is best read as a follow up to Sanjoy Hazarika's 'Strangers of the Mist'

I think I heard of insurgency in North East India for the first time some 4 years back Even then I didn't give it much thought Only when I went to a road trip to North East after looking at the numerous Army personnel I thought of digging into that But I forgot about it after some time in the daily hassle And with this book I finally made an attempt at itThis book definitely gives a good amount of information about insurgency in North eastAt least it did for me and I am a beginner It touches on almost all the issues of insurgency there be it Nagaland Tripura Manipur Assamthough there is not much about Assam accord Meghalaya and Bodoland But the only thing I didn't like is the Author's personal accounts Before purchase I thought that it is kind of some scholastic work Though his personal accounts seems interesting at times indeed they give a good flow but sometimes they felt vague Overall a good read And also I think it is must for us mainstream Indians to read or watch something that gives a good idea about North East India and it's insurgency because it is usually not given preference in the mainstream mediaExclude NRC and citizenship bill
