The Plum Tree

About the Book:

This book is a literary medley created out of the innumerable experiences of the author, experiences that had a lasting impact on Dr. Phukan. A delightful collection of events and characters strewn over locales both nearer home in Assam, or a city in the south and beyond the seas in the English isles.
