magnificent account of the lives of Sylheti people living in North Tripura. The
reconstruction of their livelihood, their inclination to their culture and heritage,
their festivals and folklore, their desire, delight and agony, the effect of emigration
and urbanization...everything is wonderfully portrayed by the novelist. The fates of
common folks are somehow connected to the river. The river is the silent witness
of the circus called life. The river is the divine and the demon. It is the symbol of
contentment and the metaphor of the eternal flight of Mahakaal. Through the
characters of the novel, we explore the plight of relationships, the propensities of
human-mind, the fruit of selfish pursuits, the science latent in superstition, and the
bites of blind faith, politics and dowry system. We marvel at the riddles of Nature.
