Case Stories

An echo from the hills – the story of Kitang

I am ‘Kitang’ – sounds like your name eh? You will never be able to forget me- I challenge you to it- you should try really hard.  After almost six months when I sit down to write her story, I vividly recall the smallish woman from Chandel District Manipur dressed in the Phanek (sarong) bright red with a black border – she was right, I can still feel her laughter. She has made a deep imprint in me – never to be rubbed off.
