ON DOG: IF SOME TRIBES OF NAGALAND WERE TOLD TO WRITE A BOOK
Book Title-First among the Equals: Rise and Rise of an Alpha Dog
Reviewer’s comments: The book is overburdened with adjectives. Too much usage of the superlative degree has made this book a jar of bigotry. Some of the paragraphs in all the chapters should be omitted as it dwells strongly on a colonial mindset which shows nothing but supremacy.
Book Title- Show it all: A Flashy Life of a Rich Red Dog
Reviewer’s comments: The book doesn’t stick to its methodology. This is an over-ambitious project filled with vocabularies which don't even exist in a standard dictionary. The chapter titled ‘Leather Jacket’ should be dropped.
Book Title- Old is Gold: Tracing the Traditional, Indigenous, Nationalistic ideals of a Dog
Reviewer’s comments: This book has used so many theories which make it pretty confusing. Hence, the reviewer is still stuck in the first chapter.
Book Title-Street Smart: How a Dog discovered the Smallest and the Most Expensive Bone!
Reviewer’s comments: Quite motivational as every chapter is 'cleverly' explained, but some paragraphs need proper referencing, or else the author might be held for plagiarizing contents.
Book Title-A Dog’s Salt History
Reviewer’s comments: The author has failed to highlight the negative impact of high intake of salt on dog’s health. The publication of this book has been sponsored by Tata Salt, hence, the authenticity of this book is highly doubtful.
TRIBES FROM EASTERN NAGALAND
Book Title-Dog, Kennel and Bone: A Long Good-Bye
Reviewer’s comments: This book needs thorough proofreading, misused modifiers everywhere. The Theory of Relative Deprivation has been well argued. The author of this book has a fair chance of winning Nobel Prize in Economics if the correlation between the Dog with its kennel and bone is proven diagrammatically.
