Depiction of Ethnic Identity in the North-East Indian Novel in English
India is a place of variety with multicultural and multilingual dimensions. Various cultures are fused here with the inner bond of unity amid diversity. Thus, various religions like Buddhists, Hindus, Muslims, Jains, Sikhs coexisted here with friendship and loyalty. India with regional barriers like language or culture made a unique place in the globe. It had a history of more than a thousand years of amalgamations of different cultures. Every corner of India has a special unique feature which we cannot imagine! But the North-East culture has something to look upon with especial eyes. As literature is the eye of society, I am taken the works of literature available in English from the Indian North-East region where at least eight Indian state lives with unity in diversity. They have only one thing in common - the river Brahmaputra¬¬¬¬¬- which may be the backbone of North-Eastern civilizations! Here in this paper, I am trying a very brief survey of those states with their depicted reality that may be available in some selected novels of indigenous novelists.
