Mother, Where’s My country? arc the life of Manipular, a state located in India’s north east, a diverse, picturesque, and strategically-vial state. It is also home to multiple insurgencies, a contested political identity, and a law called the Armed Forces Special Powers Act (AFSPA). Based on nine years of reporting from Manipur, including more than 200 interviews, scrutinizing dozens of court documents and testimonials, and revisiting places and conversations, Anubha Bhonsle paints a picture where impunity, fake encounters, protests and denial of memory and justice continue in an endless cycle. The book is available in the United Sates via Amazon.
Praise for the book – P Sainath: “…Anubha Bhonsle reproaches our hypocrisy but addresses our humanity.”
