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.

Testimonials
I received the statue today, and it is beautiful! Worth the wait! Thank you so much, blessings, Kimberly.
Kimberly, USA
I received the Green Tara Thangka described below right on schedule. Thank you a million times for that. My teacher loved it and was extremely moved by it. Although I have seen a lot of Green Tara thangkas, and have looked at other Green Tara Thangkas you offer and found them all to be wonderful, the one I purchased is by far the most beautiful I have ever seen -- or at least it is the one that most speaks to me.
John, USA
Your website store is a really great place to find the most wonderful books and artifacts from beautiful India. I have been traveling to India over the last 4 years and spend 3 months there each time staying with two Bengali families that I have adopted and they have taken me in with love and generosity. I love India. Thanks for doing the business that you do. I am an artist and, well, I got through I think the first 6 pages of the book store on your site and ordered almost 500 dollars in books... I'm in trouble so I don't go there too often.. haha.. Hari Om and Hare Krishna and Jai.. Thanks a lot for doing what you do.. Great !
