016 FindingTheVoices Jamuna Devi Advani writer of the book Land of the Dancing Deer, deer referring to Sangai found in Manipur

I am proud to present the interview with Jamuna Devi Advani, originally from Manipur, currently located in California, USA and writer of the book “Land of the Dancing Deer”, deer referring to Sangai found in Manipur. She has created a beautiful family history in poetry and her book begins with reflections about her memories, beliefs and stories of her life’s journey particularly in Manipur.

I am honoured to receive an autograph copy of her book “Land of The Dancing Deer”, I really enjoyed her book, it took me back to Manipur as I was reading the book and seeing it from her eyes at that era in Manipur and her pictures/paintings added to my imagination in seeing her grandmother and other incidents which she had mentioned in the book. Her book is available at Amazon , Lulu and Ebook. Also you can follow her Blog with interesting story and writings.

She has very interesting thoughts and advice to share on raising kids, inter marriage between different communities sharing her own experience having married out of the community.

I really admire her strong positive attitude, giving out so much positive energy and openness in trying different things, keeping up with modern technologies and times after suffering a great lost when her husband passed away. And she plays golf too 🙂
