a dystopian satire that draws a telling portrait of our times; and finally an international bestseller from India weaves together a writer’s experiences as a social and environmental activist — all of this in fiction Two years ago there was a spontaneous protest by leading Indian writers who returned their Sahitya Akademi awards in the wake of what they called a growing climate of intolerance and a threat to free speech in the country Later these writers were dubbed as those with “vested interests” seeking “cheap publicity” at a time when their books had “stopped selling” Those opposed to them pointed out that as writers the ideal way to put their perspectives before the public was through their writings — and few could disagree with this fundamental point Cut to the present: The year 2017 witnessed the release of at least three powerful novels along with two short story anthologies all of which use the medium of art and fiction to reflect the burden of society Leading the charge with huge publicity and global media attention was the return of writer-activist Arundhati Roy with her novel The Ministry of Utmost Happiness The novel came after a hiatus of two long decades during which Roy was actively involved in a number of social and environmental campaigns — a lot of which is reflected in the offering From Kashmir to Maoists and transgenders to crony capitalism it is an inward contemplation of a master storyteller on the times and surroundings she is living in “I speak as a reader and a publisher when I say that I turn to fiction as much as to non-fiction when I seek to make sense of our times or any time that has gone past us The Ministry of Utmost Happiness is a stellar example of the sheer humanity of the art of the novel What such a book does is stand up for integrity It shows us both searing beauty and the fearsome ugliness Arundhati Roy’s book is an empathetic hopeful and fiercely idealistic response to the epic tale of Independent India What more can one ask of a great Indian novel” Meru Gokhale Editor-in-Chief Literary Publishing of Penguin Random House India asked while speaking to IANS Soon after Roy’s novel came When the Moon Shines By Day by Nayantara Sahgal a member of the Nehru-Gandhi family and a noted writer who spearheaded the “award wapsi” campaign in 2015 The moon obviously does not shine by day nor does the sun shine by night “Something is wrong if one is forced to agree with such propositions or be punished for refusing to agree” Sahgal said pointing to the larger narrative that she presents in her novel Thus a character finds her father’s books on medieval history disappearing from bookstores and libraries Her young domestic help Abdul discovers that it is safer to be called Morari Lal on the street but there is no such protection from vigilante fury for his Dalit friend Suraj Kamlesh a diplomat and writer comes up against official wrath for his anti-war views And finally the year closed with the recent release of Kiran Nagarkar’s Jasoda a commentary on society narrated as fiction The readers question the protagonist Jasoda seeking to understand whether she is a mother murderer or saint “You could characterise Jasoda as a novel that explores the incidence of female infanticide its causes and its consequences in Indian society particularly in the hinterland; or a novel that bridges the urban-rural divide through the theme of migration a live issue for our times; or a novel that depicts the generation gap between the acquiescent pre-liberalisation generation and the ambitious confident post-liberalisation generation; or a novel that shows how power tends to be all-consuming and yet how vulnerable the votaries of power eventually are; or a novel that paints the inequities of gender disparity and discrimination in horrifying poignant ways” Udayan Mitra Publisher Literary HarperCollins India told IANS “Jasoda is all of this and more; for it is above and beyond everything a Kiran Nagarkar novel written in his inimitable style and marked by his unique perceptions; it captures and transcends reality Perhaps the most important thing to remember about the book is that the central character is a woman she is a mother and her name is Jasoda — a name everyone familiar with mythology knows What the book is ultimately about for me is how myth and reality are at cross-purposes in today’s India” he added Above and beyond these names are When Danniel Comes to Judgement by Keki Daruwalla and Up Country Tales by Mark Tully — both short story anthologies — bringing many societal issues to the fore The biggest achievement of these books lies in the fact that they have transported their settings to the ground realities of the times we are living in moved away from an elitist urbanscape (the current trend) and in doing so they have only rekindled the rich legacy of the likes of Raja Rao Mulk Raj Anand and RK Narayan who gave expression to traditional cultural ethos of India and its ground realities in their writing For all the latest Lifestyle News download Indian Express App IE Online Media Services Pvt Ltd More Related NewsBy: Tech Desk | New Delhi | Updated: July 11 2017 10:19 am Amazon Prime Day deals: Apple iPhone 7 iPhone 6s iPhone 6 Apple Watch 2 are all on discount Related News Amazon Prime Day deals are still on and these are the last few hours Apple iPhone 7 iPhone 6s iPhone 6 Apple Watch all have a discounted price as part of the Amazon Prime Day deals As with any other deal on Amazon Prime Day you need to be an Amazon Prime Member to claim any of these Amazon Prime membership in India cost Rs 499 per year and includes free access to Amazon Prime Video The price is expected to go up to Rs 999 in the second year though that hasn’t be announced yet Here’s a look at some iPhone deals on Amazon and those on other smartphones Apple iPhone 7 in Black colour with 32GB storage space is priced at Rs 42999 on Amazon as part of the deal Apple iPhone 7 now has an official price tag of 56200 and while the regular discounted price is around Rs 47590 The Amazon Prime deal gives you another Rs 5000 or so off Apple iPhone 7 in Jet Black colour with 128GB storage is priced Rs 53999 on Amazon India under the Prime Day deals and this is down from the original price of Rs 65200 Apple iPhone 7 in Black (this is the matte black variant not the shiny glossy Jet Black) with 128GB storage is priced at Rs 51499 on the Amazon Prime Day deal Coming to the older iPhones Apple iPhone 6 in Space Grey colour and 32GB storage will cost you Rs 24999 as part of the deal which is not bad at all Apple iPhone 6 is eligible for iOS 11 as well However you can get the iPhone 6s in Space Grey with 32GB at a price of Rs 34999 down from Rs 46900 Again the iPhone 6s is a better option to consider considering this phone launched in 2015 and comes with a 12MP rear camera and a 5MP front camera It will also get iOS 11 and you’re getting the iPhone for under Rs 40000 However the 32GB storage will be a bummer for some Apple iPhone 6s iPhone 6 all have discounts on Prime Day deals For those who’ve been wanting to buy an Apple Watch Series 2 in the 42 mm size you can get the Space Grey colour in the aluminium case with a black sport band for Rs 27900 down from the original price of Rs 34900 Other smartphones which still have some deals and offers running on them include the budget Samsung On5 Pro (Gold) smartphone which gets a discount of Rs 500 and can be purchased for Rs 7490 Also the OnePlus 5 has Rs 2000 cashback via Amazon Pay balance for Prime members only who are purchasing this phone in exchange for another smartphone This deal applies only on the 6GB RAM gray colour variant For all the latest Technology News download Indian Express App IE Online Media Services Pvt Ltd More Related News For all the latest Entertainment News, but in the beginning, “You can make a whole tree with many, However,official sources said.
