Description

About the Book :

A selection from Ashok Mitras famed Calcutta Diary in the Economic and Political Weekly, these short essays chronicle the troubled times on the subcontinent from 1999 to 2003. Ashok Mitras column in the Weekly had run from the early 1970s, with important gaps during which Mitra held political office, and each single piece had taken up one or more of the burning issues of the day and subjected them to a remorseless and incisive dissection. Ranging from politics to sports, commoners to corporations, poetry to processions, global to local-these taut, tense, disturbing meditations bring out what has always been the uppermost concern in Mitras chequered career: an overriding sympathy for the underdog and a corrosive contempt for the forces poisoning the existence of man. Many of the earlier essays had been anthologized; the present collection brings the latest-and some of the best-pieces together in a series of linked reflections on out life and subcontinent-and India of course gets the most attention-but Mitra makes it clear in nearly all the pieces that contemporary reality weaves intriguing narrative patters involving lives all over the globe, and that encountering the imperialism of the day should be the first concern f all who have claims to be citizens of the world.
