Nagaland legislator and BJP national spokesperson Mmhonlumo Kikon has released his latest and third book of poems titled Slingstones. The book, which is based on Naga communities, is published by Delhi-based Rupa Publications.
Kikon’s poems examine the past from the prism of the present and investigate both the historical and cultural background of the region.
Slingstones is the poetic exploration of the historical and spiritual landscapes of the Indigenous Communities. It resonates with the renewed interest in the traditions and indigenous thoughts of the people of northeast India.
The vibrant evocation of the beautiful culture of the northeast from the perspective of a poet is visible in the new book.
Union Minister Kiren Rijiju showcased the book and took to Twitter to congratulate Mmhonlumo Kikon on the release of Slingstones.
