Against the backdrop of a politically turbulent Assam, a young girl named Millie is determined to make her voice heard. She spends a blissful childhood in pastoral Assam with seven sisters, three anxious matriarchs, and a resigned father—this is all her small world is about.
Born in a family of priests, she struggles with orthodoxy and convention, and goes on to become a student leader—something which only foreshadows the bigger role she is destined to play. A flawed horoscope delays her marriage but hastens her emancipation. Her tryst with romance is overwhelming, and sweeps her off her feet, but…
Ethnic clashes, militant activities, violent elections seethe the countryside otherwise dotted with myriad tribes, lush tea gardens, exotic orchids, sundry birds and teals, one-horned rhinos and much more.
Whether Millie’s voice is loud enough to make an impact in the Brahmaputra valley remains to be seen…
Suravi Sharma Kumar is a doctor by profession and has always been fascinated by the world of words. What inspired her to write the book was the fact that the common people of ‘mainland’ India are still not familiar with the country’s North-east and are unaware of its innate beauty.
This is her first book and is based on her research and experiences in the valley.
