Compassion -In the Expression of Healing and Comforting

By Dr. Maribon Viray and Dr. Glenn C Kharkongor

'Compassion is at the core of the mission and vision of our university. As we take part in the teaching and learning of our students, we also aim to facilitate and lead the expression of compassion in any workplace, in every setting, for anyone at present and in the future. As humans we may falter, but we will strive to cultivate in us and our students this very essence of reaching out especially to the poorest of the poor, the neglected and marginalized, the hurting, and the dying around us. In so doing, we may fulfill the motto of our university “The Light of Truth” that we may partake to illuminate, educate, and edify one another. We hope that this monograph as a study material will serve as a tool for this endeavor'. (Maribon Viray, 2020)

Tales of Darkness and Light

By Janet Hujon (Author, Foreword, Introduction, Narrator, Translator), Careen Joplin Langstieh (Illustrator), Mark Turin (Preface)

This book is about the work of Soso Tham, the acknowledged poet laureate of the Khasis of northeastern India. He was one of the first Khasi writers to give written poetic form to the rich oral tradition of his people. Poet of landscape, myth and memory, Soso Tham paid rich and poignant tribute to his tribe in his masterpiece The Old Days of the Khasis. Janet Hujon’s vibrant new translation presents the English reader with Tham’s long poem, which keeps a rich cultural tradition of the Khasi people alive through its retelling of old narratives and acts as a cultural signpost for their literary identity. This book is essential reading for anyone with an interest in Indian literature and culture and in the interplay between oral traditions and written literary forms. The book includes QR codes that link to audio recordings of the poems read by the translator.
