Extras Glasses? Save and continue. Well into teenage, I was enchanted with fairy tales and dressed-up animal pictures. We had a pair of ducks. One holiday, I made a small necktie from a piece of cloth and with the help of my siblings, made the male duck wear it. We thought he looked handsome, and planned to make a dress for his wife too. We got a good scolding for our folly. From Imphal we returned to Shillong and I went back to the same school I attended before. Shortly before my high school leaving board exams, my father contracted TB and was hospitalised.
My mother too fell ill and had to be hospitalised also. I scraped through the exam, passing in third division. At around age 16, I started working as a Nursery class teacher in a private school and studied in the evening section of Shillong College. My dad was thrilled when I passed BA with honours. I sometimes feel that my education is rather half-baked due to much moving about and being a part time student through college.
I went back to Mizoram only after Post graduation, to teach in a college in Aizawl. Who were the authors you read during your childhood? A lot of comics, to begin with. Fairy Tales, Schoolgirl, Western and others. I remember being so totally immersed in Ivanhoe and The Black Arrow, that the real world seemed unreal.

Most of my English language learning was through reading. JS: Why did you decide to write a novel with the insurgency as a backdrop? The insurgency affected every Mizo, whether in or out of Mizoram. My dad was terribly upset. And soon after that, we kept hearing about the goings on, about the Army operations and the horrendous happenings.

All this left a strong impression on me. How do they feel now that political peace has returned? How are they coping emotionally with all the trauma they went through? It was this very question that got me thinking of writing a novel. And the novel gives the necessary large canvas for the rather complicated theme. How do you view this Movement? This phenomenon takes place every 50 years. The bamboos flower, produce fruit and then dry up. Rats feed on the fruits and multiply greatly, eating up crops in the fields. So when this famine took place in the early 60s, the Indian government did nothing much to help.
The people were hurt by the neglect. Besides the famine, Mizoram had not been developed after the Independence. There were no proper roads, and the healthcare and education we had was negligible. There was not much improvement in any of these since the British left. These problems needed to be addressed. But taking up arms was a huge blunder. It only brought terrible sufferings for the whole community. In all violent movements we observe, the participants may start with good intention and high ideals.
But as the fight goes on, they tend to descend into inhuman behaviour. I am againstall violent movements and all atrocities. Do you considerZorami as historical novel? But since it deals with historical events, and many of the characters in the novel are based on real people, some consider it appropriate to call it that. JS: Who did you talk to during your research for the novel?

A number of people I met at different settings, like at some get-togethers. Let me describe this one. When I went to Aizawl in May , I visited a friend whose husband had died some time before. There were several other visitors. Most of them spoke up. They narrated their experiences, some horrifying, some funny. I repeated the same method in Lunglei.
I found that people were quite willing to come out with their own stories and the stories of others. I also interviewed at length some key personsby appointment, including former MNF leaders and a pastor who started the peace process. There is a hint of spiritual epiphany in the novel. Is it deliberate? I honestly could not find any other way to mend her shattered psyche. And for a people still hurting from the atrocitiesthey suffered, a genuine spiritual experience is the need.
Spiritual, not merely religious. The verse is actually taken from the Bible. It also points at the possibility of such healing for the land itself. Why did you make the story interspersed with songs and poems? To listen to tracks you will need to update your browser to a recent version.
