Ses and shapeshifting tigers will always continue to remain close to my heart This is a collection of 15 short stories set in and around Meghalaya I read this throughout my trip to Assam Meghalaya Arunachal and loved every bit of itJanice is a poet who writes prose beautifully The stories combine the rich culture of this part of our country with the local legends and myths to paint us a magical picture The book begins with A Waterfall for Horses a story ark and magical in eual measures Janice explores a prophecy around an old mansion in Cherrapunjee in Kut Madan 1987 is about the religious harmony of Shillong while Secret Corridors explores a budding love story in an all girl catholic schoolTo choose favourites from the list was ifficult The Dream of the Golden Mahseer the story of a boy and his uncle growing up in Shillong and Laitlum a teenage love story of the elder sister from the younger one s POV were the most impressive ones closely followed by The Keeper of Souls a "Couple Who Move Back To "who move back to from Delhi Overall a great read As a child returning to Kerala uring my school summer break one of the evening rituals I clearly remember is gathering around with my cousins at night candles and bamboo hand fans in tow all in anticipation of the hourly scheduled power cuts Without the screech of the television and the blessing of electricity to guide of the hourly scheduled power cuts Without the screech of the television and the blessing of electricity to guide reading I would usually be bored to tears until we began exchanging stories huddled around the candles their flickering flames casting giant shadows on the wall Inevitably the talk would turn to the supernatural witches roaming around seeking vows of vengeance benign spirits who Alien Conquest didn t mean harm but were always upto some sort of mischief gandharvas whoescend from the heavens and bewitch young girlsAll sorts of stories which I usually brushed away in incredulity once the lights were back on But that was a magical hour and it was probably the first time I fell in love with stories and story tellingReading Janice Pariat s Boats on Land was a bit like revisiting that magical hour Her stories took me to the hills of Shillong you could easily see the bits of coal thrown into the fireplace to warm the body and the soul and sense the heady scent of pine Whilst there is a whiff of wistfulness some sort of solemn sobriety through the stories they are thought provoking and very poignant The concepts of what is home who is an outsider and the burdens of the past are some recurring themes Pariat writes about the 1987 scuffles between the Khasis and Secrets of the TEAS® Exam Study Guide dkhars or outsiders curfewed nights and political unrest as effortlessly as sheescribes water spirits that lure the lovestruck to jump off mist laden cliffs and forlorn places where the birds go to ie Like any anthology there are some stories that are better than the rest My favourites from the collection would be the eponymous Boats on Land followed by Pilgrimage Boats on Land traces the story of a young girl visiting her parents friends in the plains of Assam a uaint little place by the banks of the mighty Brahmaputra and how an unlikely friendship impacts her for life Pilgrimage begins with a Shehecheyanu blessing of gratitudeYou who has kept us alive sustained us and enabled us to reach this seasonThe story is essentially a pilgrimage to the past and how these journeys are really to think about the places and people one leaves behind And perhaps sometimes the past is better left alone This book restores my belief in the power and magic of stories May we tell of them I started school in Shillong My father was in the Indian Air Force and my memories of the small hilly radar station are blurred but they bear some of the fondest memories of my childhoodIt was the early 90s and it was a strange place to a boy from Pondicherry but I grew to love it and my love affair with hills and rain stemmed from then Been years now but Janice Pariat has made me. Ryday is infused with folklore and a eep belief in the supernatural Here a girl reams of being a firebird An artist watches souls turn into trees A man shape shifts into a tiger Another is bewitched by water fairies Political struggles and social unrest interweave with fireside tales and age old superstition.
