After Hindi-speakers from North India were massacred in Assam on the eve of elections in 2000, two out-of-work journalists decided to travel to the state to report on the violence. This marked the beginning an epic journey in which they crisscrossed Assam, Meghalaya, Nagaland, Arunachal Pradesh, Tripura and Manipur, meeting journalists and leaders, boatmen and rickshaw-pullers, artists and sculptors. They stayed in rundown hotels and guesthouses, and in the homes of friends and strangers. They travelled by local buses through ambushes, they were forced to walk halfway down the highway from Shillong to Guwahati and, on one memorable occasion, Anil had to share a tractor with a herd of goats.
With great power, and rare candour, Is That Even a Country, Sir! weaves history, travel, politics, myth and gritty ground-zero reportage into an unprecedented and unforgettable portrait of Northeast India.
