Ten-year-old Barsau lives in poverty but is far from being poor. He does not go to a fancy school but learns the best from nature. His domain is not wide, yet the whole earth is his, as he revels in his own adventures under his share of the blue sky above his contented head and the earth under his joyous feet. Unusual and deeply moving, His Share of Sky is collection of short stories set in a Bodo village on the banks of the river Jwima, in Assam's Kokrajhar district. The stories, woven around the carefree life of a little tribal Bodo boy, narrate the different situations - sometimes hilarious and at other times poignant - in which he lands himself, along with his two brothers and many friends. Every child will relate to witty and smart Barsau. Although he lives in a rural setting in the north-east of India, his charm and sense of mischief remain universal and timeless.
