The Volcano your first choice for quality books
THE VOLCANO OF HUMAN EXPERIENCEThe Volcano by Swaran Chandan is a comprehensive, powerful and perceptive novel about the brutal cost of human lives, the abandonment of friendships and the tensions and division of religions and class that lead ultimately to the partition of India into two countries.As a young historian having studied Imperialism and the British Empire, I reckon, The Volcano adds a new dimension that has often been ignored by those who study the subject – the dimension of human life and experience. Historians, obsessed with objectivity, often dismiss human experience and emotion as lacking validity and tend therefore to concentrate on facts that help explain the economical, political and military phenomena of the twentieth century. But this novel is both insightful and helpful in capturing the true realities and experiences of those that were caught up in the centre of tensions leading to the partition.The Volcano is one of the few outstanding novels on recent Indian history, which integrates nature (the Banyan tree for instance) into the narrative to provide witness to the horror and pain of the partition from the standpoint of a typical village called Qila Vasudev. It helps one understand how the ‘power seekers’ as Chris Sawyer, the Editor refers to, were able to get people with long standing history of shared living, respond to the symbols of discord and disunity at a particular historical juncture.This two-part novel successfully manages to tell stories of religions, communities and individuals, which is further interwoven by a thoroughly well researched history of the country and its religions. The cultural ideologies of both Islam and Hinduism are well represented in the novel, which makes it even more authentic to the reader. It is, however, a novel one should read with a heavy heart as it contains many graphic and horrific incidences of violence and even rape, which further illustrates the core human dimension to history that this novel signifies.This is a great book to read for anyone who is passionate about the history of the partition of India and making of Pakistan, from the standing and viewpoint of no other than those who actually faced the changing boundary line.This is a novel that does not, like many others, come with readymade political viewpoints, personal grievances or a particular bias. Indeed, it is a refreshing and insightful novel, which I strongly recommend anyone to read. Sukhjot DhamiA Historian
