About the Book :

This is the first translation into English of H. Onderson Mawrie Ka Pyrkhat U. Khasi All thought the translation cannot hope to capture the vitality of the original, it will have served at least its immediate purpose, if it is able to generate a fresh approach to the study of Khasi religion, in particular, and tribal religions, in general. Mr. Mawrie account is free from any sentimentality or romanticism and he is never bitter in his criticism of the distorters of his tradition. It is about time that this book should be made available to a wider audience.
