Dimapur, Dec. 20 (EMN): A book “The Stubborn Heart” written by Wedekhro Naro, and published by PenThrill Publication House was released on Monday.

Dr. Theyiesinuo Keditsu during the release of the book said that Naro’s work disrupts the Naga narrative. “Through his writings, he is exercising his prerogative as a writer in the society”, an update stated.

“By addressing issues such as pre-marital sex and other controversial things in his book, she said that these are issues and realities our young people grapple with. As long as society continues to pretend that these do not exist, we have a problem,” it read.

She further stated that Wedekhro Naro is writing about Naga life, the Naga world and the Naga experience in Naga English.

Meanwhile, Vetalü­ Theyo said readers would ‘enjoy the book in one sitting as the story is short, fast paced and an enjoyable read besides being packed with a bundle of feelings’.

In her publisher’s note, Vishü Rita Krocha stated that the new breed of Naga writers, “are exploring not only our history of conflict, but also the contemporary world that young Nagas today live in.  As is with any of Wedekhro’s books, he has been so brave and courageous to talk about young people and sex, which, most of us Naga writers don’t dare to venture into”, she added.

Other highlights of the event included prayer by Rev. Kedo Peseyie, Pastor, City Church, Kohima while the programme was chaired by Theyiebino Whiso, it added.
