Oh all the wonderful That is exactly why I became best friends with my best friend Well one reason definitely We used to completely understand this feeling pass on the book to the other person to make her read the treasured line that made our lives beautiful at that exact moment And the book that became my favourite gave me this contentment over and over Janice Pariat through her collection of short stories in her book Boats on Land weaves the melancholic tale; albeit beautifully written almost poetic of the transformation of her native place Shillong an
