Manipur: Past & Present: Nagas & Kuki-Chins (Vol.3)
Historical explosions led the Manipuris to spread over in Mayanmar, Bangladesh (East Pakistan), Indian states of Tripura, Cachar and central districts of Assam and even to Nabadwip enclave in West Bengal. Manipuri diaspora are retaining their language, culture and heritage. They face uphill task to retain this culture due to Burmanisation of ethnic groups in myanmar. Manipuris are accustomed to speak and write Bengali in Tripura and Assamese in Assam respectively. MPP-IV dwells upon pan Manipuris in Asia and the Manipuri indigenous people. Part III of the volume incorporates the native people and archaeology. As many as 140 coloured photographs and a dozen sketches inside enrich the contents and the context. Survival of the Manipuris after Burmese holocaust in 19th century is a classic case in history. The introduction narrates the story. The trajectory of civilization of people of Manipur and the Manipuris in Asia is depicted in the four volumes. Manipurologists and scholars would find the time-travel through the pages interesting, information and reflective.
