The Man from Chinnamasta
"Through a powerful portraiture of disquiet, suffering and shocked conscience, this novel delineates the horror and cruelty of animal sacrifice. Goswami startles the reader out of habitual indifference to this issue with her sensitive explications of various aspects of the Kamakhya myth.
Indira Goswami, who also writes under the pen name of Mamoni Raisom Goswami, is an Asomiya writer par excellence who was conferred India's highest literary honour, the Jnanpith Award, in 2000."
"While dealing with a sensitive subject like animal sacrifice, (Indira Goswami) entirely depends on reason, thoughtful analysis, and concurrence of the scriptures." - Dr Prafulla Kotoky.
