Book titled “Once upon the Hills” released

Nagaland News

Dimapur, November 27: A book titled “Once upon the Hills”, written by Dr. Rakhee Kalita Moral was launched on November 26 at The White Owl Book Lounge, Chumoukedima.
Dr. Anungla Aier, former Director of Higher Education, released the book, informed a press release.
She stated that the book is distinct since it carries the perspective of an outsider from a neighbouring State about Naga women. In the author’s note, Dr. Rakhee shared that the idea of the book took birth three years ago through the Humanities across Borders (HaB) programme.
Since the book is on Naga women, she noted, “It is a Naga women’s book; it is not my book, it is yours.”
She further stated, “This book is an attempt to bridge the gap of how the Naga community and its women have been perceived and what their everyday real experiences and practises are.”
The book has a QR code scanner in every article, which will further lead the readers to similar topics. Thus, it is an example of the pedagogic shift of the present where traditional teaching learning methods intersect the digital life through the QR code that are inserted in the book.
The author, Dr. Rakhee Kalita Moral, is the Associate Professor of English, and Head, Centre for Women’s Studies, Cotton Universit yand Project Co-ordinator, Humanities across Borders (IIAS) Leiden. The book will be available at Heritage Publishing House, Dimapur and Cotton University, Guwahati.
