Manipur has also seen its share of acedemicians, poets, prophets and story tellers. Our history has an ample collection of books in its annals. Many will come too!

E-Pao! has started a new sub-site dedicated to books. We would be trying to bridge this gap and bring you the book itself or insights about it.
