Small Orange Flags: On Living during a 'state of emergency'
Small Orange Flags: On Living during a 'state of emergency'
Description
From the Jacket:

This is a compilation of six essays and a poem by novelist Amit Chaudhuri - written as an urgent response to what he feels is an ongoing state of emergency - followed by a conversation which takes up and further develops the issues and concerns. 'Small orange Flags' was written in early 1993 when he came back to India from Oxford, and encountered a changed world post the Babri masjid demolition. In it lie the seeds of the idea for his novel Freedom Song. 'Living in the Mohulla', written after September 11, looks at human bonds across communities; in 'Thoughts in a Temple' he meditates on Hindutva and the changing face of Hinduism; 'Neighbours and Strife' begins with an encounter in a Greyhound bus, leading on to thoughts on minority activism in civil society; 'sticks, Stones and Names' has at its core a poem layered with disturbing images of war; and in 'A Walk Around Schoeneberg' he begins to see how silence overlays a disturbing history of erasure of the Jews. This volume lays bare disturbing and very urgent questions about how people live together despite difference.

About the Author:

Amit Chaudhuri has written four novels, a book of short stories, and edited the Picador Book of Modern Indian Literature. The Clarendon press, Oxford, recently published D.H. Lawrence and 'Differences', his study of D.H. Lawrence's poetry and critical theory. He has been translated into several languages and has won the Betty Task Award, the Commonwealth Writers Prize, the Encore Prize, the Encore Prize, the Southern Arts Literature Prize, the Los Angeles Times Book Prize for Fiction, and the Sahitya Akademi award. He is also a vocalist in the North Indian classical tradition.

The best and fastest service worldwide - I am in Australia and I put in a big order of books (14 items) on a Wednesday; it was sent on Friday and arrived at my doorstep early on Monday morning - amazing! All very securely packed in a very strong cardboard box. I have bought several times from Exotic India and the service is always exceptionally good. THANK YOU and NAMASTE!

I wanted to let you know how happy we are with our framed pieces of Shree Durga and Shree Kali. Thank you and thank your framers for us. By the way, this month we offered a Puja and Yagna to the Ardhanarishwara murti we purchased from you last November. The Brahmin priest, Shree Vivek Godbol, who was visiting LA preformed the rites. He really loved our murti and thought it very paka. I am so happy to have found your site , it is very paka and trustworthy. Plus such great packing and quick shipping. Thanks for your service Vipin, it is a pleasure.
