FilmsI have been involved in various films.
When the soul of a nation dies
Parasher Baruah, 2008
Occupation by India in 1947 after the British left has resulted in an unresolved struggle for freedom by the people of Nagaland. The long struggle is being threatened from within by Chinese Marxism, which crept in in the 1980s.
The film mirrors the tragedy of an occupied country fighting the twin wars of sovereignty and an internal factional war, while its people aspire for peace.
BooksI've also contributed to other books.
