About this Item: Niyogi Books, 2017. Hardcover. Condition: New. First edition. The history of the Partition is neither singular nor static. It appears different from different perspectives. The past is never over, its presence looms large over our presents. The Partition narrative exceeds the bounds of history, to the large scale exodus often referred to as the third partition?most painful and long-lasting in its emotional, political and social contexts. It impacted both collective and individual identities. In some ways it rendered the individual invisible with identity being transformed into a stereotype which evoked conventional patterns of behaviour. The heartache and anguish of divided families and frustrated, failed individual lives lay heavy on the joy of a much coveted freedom. Oral histories break the hegemony of the written. Fictional narratives offering psychological insights and a history of relationships move beyond facts to cultural constructs, the psychology of fear, and the uncertainty and bewilderment of the moment. They enter individual psyches to explore morality and ethics, guilt and regret. This collection seeks to debate issues and throw light on discourses other than those of violence and darkness, working with a chronology, located in time. The narratives unfold expectation, hope and harmony, flight and violence, psychological fallouts, gender issues and questions of guilt and reflection. As the stories trace the shifts in emotions and focus on individual wills, the undercurrents of cultural oneness form a counter discourse. Printed Pages: 202. Seller Inventory # 109416

About this Item: Orient BlackSwan, 2016. Hardcover. Condition: New. First edition. About the Book Revisiting India?s Partition: New Essays on Memory, Culture, and Politics is a contributory volume on the Partition of India on the eve of Independence. There are 19 essays in the book drawn from interdisciplinary backgrounds on several topics pertaining to the Partition, including decolonisation and post-colony, economic development and nation-building, cross-border skirmishes, terrorism, and nationalism. The volume covers areas beyond Punjab and Bengal and includes analyses of Sindh, Kashmir, Hyderabad, and more broadly South India, the Northeast, and Burma. It, in fact, extends and expands on the original notion of the ?Long Partition? to examine the cultural, political, economic, and psychological impact the Partition continues to have on communities in South Asia and throughout the diaspora. Useful for scholars in literary and cultural studies, history, political studies, sociology, Asian/South Asian studies, and women?s studies, the book has a thought-provoking introduction which provides a multi-vocal, multi-focal, transnational commentary on the Partition in relation to motifs, texts, and regions that have earlier been ignored.

Nation, Ideal Womanhood and English Education: Revisiting the First Tulu Novel Sati Kamale/Yogitha Shetty. 13. Between Langue and Parole: The Forked Road to Development/Jasbir Jain. English as a symbol of modernity in India was first accessed by men, giving them a new image of masculinity while Indian languages were ‘feminized’—seen as meant for women. Among upper-caste women, English was a vehicle for social reform and for lessening seclusion, invisibility and economic dependence. For the so-called lower castes, the language was aspirational, indicating emancipation and empowerment possibilities, and threatening upper-caste dominance. English formed its own language of gender and made women’s voices stronger in regional languages, which can be seen in the flowering of women’s articles, fiction, biography and letters. This book records the different ways in which women responded to the coming of English into their lives.(jacket). Seller Inventory # 122236

About this Item: Rawat Publications, 2015. Hardcover. Condition: New. Dust Jacket Condition: New. 1st Edition. The Diaspora Writes Home: Subcontinental Narratives is a work of gathering the multiple dispersions of the emigrants from South Asia across time and space to the various homelands they relate to now. The word ‘write’ is used in all its multiplicity the fact of creative expression, as an inscription, a mark and writing as a connectivity, a remembrance, an involvement with memory with all its shifts. Writing is also a representation and carries its own baggage of poetics and aesthetics, categories which need to be problematised vis-à-vis the writer and his/her emotional location. This work, thus, explores the many ways the diaspora remembers and reflects upon the lost homeland and its own relationship with an ancestral past, its history, culture and the current political conflicts. Amongst the questions it asks is ‘how does the diaspora relate to us at home and what is our relationship to them as representatives of our present?’. The last is problematic in itself for our present is not theirs and distance cannot equate the two. The transformations that new locations have brought about as they have travelled through time and interacted with the politics of their new homelands wherever they be Africa, Fiji, the Caribbean Islands, UK, US and Canada, as well as the countries created out of India, such as Pakistan and Bangladesh, have altered their affiliations and perspectives. An important aspect of political emigrations is the refugee/muhajir especially in the subcontinent. The above issues together seek for new insights into the problematic of the diasporas’ lost homes.

The corpus of myths and rituals with its roots in the oral traditions and folklores has always captivated the writers worldwide who turned to myths and mythology to juxtapose the past and the present in order to depict the predicament of mankind and to probe the mythicality of human existence. The fertile terrain of interdisciplinary scholarship has added to the richness and diversity of oral/traditional genres. Orality as a feature of communication embodies in it both traditional and modern characteristics. Timeless and unanchored, it freely travels from age to age, country to country and genre to genre.

Written by established and mid-career scholars from across the world, the essays employ a variety of approaches to the idea of “border crossings” and represent important contributions to the discourses on modernity, diasporic mobility, populism, migration, exile, sub-nation, trans-nation, as well as the formation of nationalities, communities, and identities. Borders, in these contexts, signify social and national inequities and hierarchies and also the ways to challenge and transgress entrenched barriers sanctioned by habit, custom, and law. The volume also honours and celebrates the life and work of Amritjit Singh as a teacher, mentor, author, scholar, and editor. Seller Inventory # 122129

About this Item: Rawat Publications, 2018. Hardcover. Condition: New. 1st Edition. Contents: Introduction. 1. Literature as an artefact of history: the turns we missed the reluctant rise of nationalism. 2 the mai-baap syndrome: feudalism, divisive polity and the reluctant rise of nationalism. 3 activism and answerability: unpicking the postcolonial discourse. 4 re-viewing the renaissance: an investment in modernity? political shifts and dialogues. 5 the coming of gandhi: his experiential evolution in the political world. 6 the aftermath of divisive nationalisms in the subcontinent: a nation divided. 7 mass exodus: mourning together or alone? shared histories: separate territories. 8 the dialectics of history: narratives of the subcontinent’s participation in the empire’s wars. 9 breaking the silence: poets, revolutions and politics. 10 dissent and the performative medium: ipta and ajoka violence and its continuities. 11 terror: the many manifestations of an abstraction. 12 the travels of maoism in the subcontinent. 13 why did saeed mirza write ammi? nuclear weapons, development and environment. 14 woman as text: violence and the human. 15 baramaha, the lacanian ‘real’ and sealy’s the everest hotel.16 bhoma: the eternally resurrected. Subcontinental Histories is an exploration of the historical events of the last two centuries, interpreted here through literary texts – fiction, poetry and drama – works which move away from the immediacy of history to analyse it in retrospect. They represent the individual voices, the restlessness and discontent as well as the fissures in the idea of a nation. Documents such as letters, speeches and newspaper articles, similarly offer a different view of reality when freed from the immediacy of the expression. The subcontinent has a shared past both of the colonial experience and the resistance movements it generated, and of the many efforts to imagine and construct a nation. Beginning with India’s past and the many causalities of ideas and ideologies on the way to freedom, the present work goes on to look at the aftermath of divisive nationalisms leading to the partition of the country, before moving to the many manifestations of terror in India and its neighbouring countries, the race for nuclear weapons and environmental concerns. Several writers and thinkers of this period have been discussed – Jotiba Phule, Henry Derozio, Rabindranath Tagore, Bankimchandra, Mahatma Gandhi, Faiz Ahmed Faiz, Kazi Nasrul Islam, Pash, Kamila Shamsie, Girish Karnad, Shahid Nadeem, Badal Sircar, Intizar Husain, Saadat Hasan Manto, Attia Hosain, Allan Sealy, Nadeem Aslam, Githa Hariharan, Mumtaz Shahnawaz – to enable a dialogue between the past and the present. This work opens up the past to a rethinking and reassessment of events that have moulded our times and need to be interrogated. (jacket). Seller Inventory # 123445
