Kypham Sing Nongkynrih

About the book

“Manik is based on the true story of Manik Raitong, or Manik the Wretched, and his love affair with Lieng Makaw, wife of a famous king ruling an ancient Khasi state. Shunned by society, Manik—a young man all alone in the world, who had lost not only his family but also all the members of his clan—goes about in sackcloth and dusts himself from head to foot with ashes. So how does he win the love of a queen? What happens to him and his lover? This is a riveting tale, the most famous love story among the Khasis, dramatised by Kynpham Sing Nongkynrih, a writer well-versed in his craft.”
