About this product
- DescriptionKohima, 2007. A young man has just been gunned down in cold blood - the latest casualty in the conflict that has brutalized the people of Nagaland, in the neglected rtheastern corner of India. Rich in culture and history, Bitter Wormwood traces the story of one man's life from 1937 to 2007, offering poignant insight into the human cost behind the political headlines of one of India's most beautiful regions. In a gripping story that brings to life the processes that propel social change and transform communities, Easterine Kire skillfully renders the small incidents of Mose's childhood, his family, and the routines and rituals of traditional village life, painting an evocative picture of a peaceful way of life, w long-vanished. The coming of radio into Mose's family house marks the beginning of the changes that will connect them to the wider world. They learn of partition, independence, a land called America. Mose and his friends become involved in the Naga struggle for independence and are caught in a maelstrom of violence that ends up ripping communities apart.
