Akathya in Assamese means “something not fit to be spoken”, even if it’s the plain and the most bitter truth. But all through my life, I have been telling what shouldn’t have been told, that’s Akathya, that too rather ‘loudly’ and much to the annoyance of many people. My weekly show Akathya that I hosted in News Live for almost five years had often run into controversies, in as much the same way the name of the show suggested. I have encountered numerous situations, met countless people and faced different situations in my two-and-a-half-decade-long career in journalism. There were many incidents that had been ‘secrets’; that were never shared with a second person until I wrote the book, Xangbadikatar Akathya. Akathya again. Each and every word, every line written in the book is based on truth and nothing else. I have written what I had seen, and heard. It would be wrong to term the book an autobiography, and I don’t consider myself ‘fit’ to pen down an autobiographical account. However, I do hope whatever I have written will help people understand the twists and turns life can take at times.
