And Quiet Flows The Luit

‘And Quiet Flows the Luit’ presents short articles and photo essays on the Northeast today—a profound paradox which simultaneously represents the frontiers of globalization as well as a heritage of Indigenous traditions and cultures. Like the enigmatic river Luit which flows through it, the Northeast explores issues of globalization, marginality, ecology, knowledge systems and offers powerful narratives which depict a deep understanding of the changing human condition. The ‘Northeast’ is not simply an abstract political concept or idea but through the diverse forms of culture and art emerging from the region, it is an evolving and lived reality. This series spins vibrant yarns from the Northeast—tales of negotiating change with memory and remembrance, of community histories and of new worlds—reflecting resistance, resilience and endurance.
