Sanskarnama6Lora Tomas about ‘Sanskarnama’, in a long, detailed on Nabina Das the author, and the book, in Himal Southasian

It is divided into five untitled parts, which are separated by illustrations executed by Das, and made up of free and rhymed verse compositions of varied length and arrangement.

Her verses are perfect for reading out loud.
