This book gathers together four different reportages, four stories of another India, different, unusual, and sometimes far from the collective imagination. The last Head Hunter of Nagaland (a group of warriors who, to increase their own power in the village, used to carry out the ritual decapitation of the enemy); The Malla Yuddha, the ancient indian wrestling in mud; The "Naga Baba" the highest expression of Indian asceticism, and the scourge of opium in the Indian-Myanmar border, where a third of the men of these villages are now addicted and slaves to the opium.
