MOKOKCHUNG — Former journalist and author Longrangty Longchar released his sixth book, ‘The Whirlwind’, in the conference hall of the Mokokchung Town Lanur Telongjem (MTLT) office at Arkong Ward, Mokokchung, on Monday.

‘The Whirlwind’ is Longchar’s third book published by Heritage Publishing House, following ‘Timeless Whispers’ and ‘Seven Stones’.

In a note from the author delivered on the occasion, he said that the book stems from his friends’ encouragement to write another fictional story about society.

Longchar said that ‘The Whirlwind’ is a product of his imagination and, while it may resemble common life in society, it remains a work of fiction.

He encouraged readers to approach the book with an open mind and hoped they would find joy in its pages. He also expressed gratitude to God for His blessings and hoped that the book would be as much a blessing to others as it had been to him.

Longchar expressed his gratitude to those who supported him through thick and thin and wished that the book would be a blessing from God to all its readers.

The special guest for the event, Imnaonen Pongen, president of MTLT, stated that the book is a testament to the author’s dedication, passion, and commitment to the craft of writing. He noted that it reflects countless hours of hard work, late nights, and moments of inspiration that have culminated in this beautiful piece of literature.

Pongen lauded the author’s ability to touch hearts, inspire minds, and ignite imaginations through his storytelling.

“Let us be inspired by his dedication and determination in bringing this book to life and carry forward its message in our own journeys,” he said.

Dr. Asangla Tzudir from Heritage Publishing House, Dimapur, said in her message that ‘The Whirlwind’, a fictional narrative, offers insight into overlooked aspects of Naga society.

She noted that it addresses themes such as conversations at funerals, perceived hypocrisy in Naga churches, state corruption, alcohol addiction, and reflections on death and religion.

“The author skillfully captures diverse ideologies about death and religion,” she said.
