Biren Khwairakpam
He was born at Awang Sengmai of Manipur and he grew up attending all the cultural functions in his own community. Sensing that almost all the traditional cultural elements are going to be replaced by the newly engulfing cultures of outsiders, he wants to preserve and at least keep as record even if the tradition and culture is replaced by a new wave of culture, he started setting the first pencil stroke to begin the journey of writing this book. He was an engineer by profession and because of his background, he wants to interpret and link culture and tradition and their meaning to scientific interpretation. His other work is Finding the Roots: Andro and Sengmai Community” as co-writer. He lives with his wife Kh. Subadani.
