    Liya, a young Santal, is a regular girl from an Adivasi village in Assam, with regular struggles, aspirations and experiences, who nds herself in a journey through life against the backdrop of ethnic riots.
    An exploration of identity —and the prejudice and discrimination attached to it— this novel marks Rejina Marandi’s debut and a fresh attempt to expose and document a dark corner in the long negation Adivasis in Assam have suffered.
    Questioning not the social, political and economical roots of it but their painful effects in a new generation of people, Liya’s story is about her coming of age in a country that may not be entirely hers.
