Stories From Kalinga: Memoir of a Village Girl

The Stories From Kalinga:Memoir of a Village Girl is my first book and first venture into published writing, and it is now available on Amazon Kindle

 |  1 min read

Hello, Kailyan, my book entitled "Stories from Kalinga - Memoir of a Village Girl" is a set of twenty stories covering the life of a girl growing up in a village in Kalinga in poverty and subject to seasonal food supply, interruptions by typhoons, and travel on foot for all needs. Topics include the appearance of an unknown relative, victims of botched circumcision, child labour, corporal punishment, childhood fights, suitors, communal self-help and hospitality, the lives of and with their animals, making money, and coffee culture, concluding with the unbearably difficult early life of the narrator's father. The stories tell of a vanishing past, journeys into modernity, struggles to survive, and ways that communally shared values and culture forge character and identity.

The book is available on Amazon, Kindle and it will be available on paperback soon.
