Qurratulain Hyder ☆ 2 Review

Rs Hyder's prose is lyrical and witty And she argues for a culture that is inclusive Aag ka Darya آگ کا PDF is a book that uestions the relevance of religion in defining Indian identityReviews for the English translationA glorious tapestry of India's historyBrilliant and thought provokingthis book is fascinating India Edghill Historical Novels Review February A rich and ancient tapestry interweaving. The first time I read it I was not fully euipped to get the extent of it Not that I consider myself fully euipped now but at least I get a fair idea why Haider is considered to belong to the breed of Maruez Saramago and Pamuk by so many critics of Urdu literature A superb masterpiece which should be read by all from the subcontinent and those who wish to make sense of various crisscrossing currents of history society and religion Without any biases I consider it far superior than One Hundred Years of Solitude with which it is compared so often Perhaps because its breadth of past 2000 years is surprisingly so meaningful in the present I consider the letter by one of the protagonists of novel in last section as the one of the best description of Pakistan ever written Simply unputdownable

آگ کا دریاThe most important novel of twentieth century Urdu fiction First published in Aag ka Darya encompasses the fates of four recurring characters over two and a half millennia Gautam Champa Kamal and Cyril Buddhist Hindu Muslim and Christian In different eras different relations form and reform among the four romance and war possession and dispossession Interweaving parables legends dreams diaries and lette. If a novel forces you to stop now and then and consider your own life and it's extensions and from where it got extended then there should be no doubt about the elouent depth of that novel The story creeps inside you bit by bit until it permanently extends itself inside you For me such was the experience of reading Aag ka Darya It demanded a great deal of effort to read it in Urdu for like most forth generations of the post colonial countries our attachment with and command over our language is pretty shallow However such was the elouence of this novel that the whole mental structure of Urdu got redefined for me of what Urdu can be and can contain In short the effort was well worth it both in terms of meaning and linguistics The novel starts with the Urdu translation of 'The Dry Salvages' a poem by TS Eliot The emphasis of the poem is on reincarnation of how the past repeats itself in the future This theme is carried out throughout the novel by urat ul Ain in great depthThe story starts in 400 BC the age of Chankya the first Indian philosophical giant the implementations of whom's political and religious philosophy kept the Sub continent united and under control urat ul Ain Haider emphasis is on the portrayal of such rule from the lenses of the most native people the subalterns if you will; a theme that is persistent through out the novel Gautam Nelamber is the character she conjures up to personify those lenses a character in pursuit of knowledge in the Hindu traditions He finds himself at various hamlets and he is bothered by the uestions whose horizons lie outside the theological and philosophical discourses that he is taught Here comes another major theme of this novel rather a uestion Is their an end to loneliness Is a man destined to be lonely During the course of over 2000 years of incarnations the philosophies of Buddhism colonialism Hinduism Marxism Islamism and Nationalism are freuently used in the contextualization of the plots If loneliness is a philosophy then it is the major philosophy behind which all the other philosophies find their placeAnd thus we advance through the ages the uestions as persistent as ever the characters being reborn and their thinking being redefined according to time and space yet the uestions persisting and piercing as well We get to see a very realistic and unbiased discourse of the narratives cultivated in the minds of ordinary citizens regarding colonialism independence and post colonialism At times Haider also offers insights from the mind of those who are oppressing people That may be a minor theme as well how the oppressed or how the people who were so ideologically against oppression tend to do the same things being molded by the obvious uestion of surviving in a better way She also depicts the dilemmas of idealists who have to give up their cherished beliefs of euality and welfare when faced with the practical uestions of earning a livelihood A novel that evolves in the grey area and does not talk in absolutes is a pretty rare thing in Urdu and for that Urdu will always be grateful to urat ul Ain Haider for that Halfway through the novel I started relating it with 'One hundred years of solitude' the theme of the same repetitive patterns of incarnations being the common factorBut for me the weaving around of different ideologies around the lives of ordinary people portraying the effect of those ideologies on the outlook of their lives and then again how these ordinary people observe the even ordinary or rather impoverished people in the context of those ideologies was something truly spectacular and something that gives it an edge over one hundred years of solitude
