9780143103264: Beyond Black Waters

Has political and economic transformation helped to bring two worlds closer, or do the ???black waters' still separate us like the passage of death? Beyond Black Waters , the English translation of Joginder Paul's acclaimed Urdu novel Paar Pare , revolves around the community of people who were excommunicated to Kala Pani, the Andaman islands, during British rule for alleged crimes like theft, murder, political dissent and activism. Baba Lalu Gaura and others exiled to the island decide to stay back on the completion of their sentence. They put down roots and build homes, forging a new life, creating a new society. In spite of their painful past, they are progressive, enthusiastic and sympathetic to others, setting an example of humanism and religious harmony. But, unfortunately, the poison of religious intolerance manages to make inroads into their world, and Baba Lalu's family is engulfed by it. His innocent son is framed by anti-social elements and, ironically, sent to jail in Bombay, on the mainland. Going beyond the period it is set in, Beyond Black Waters highlights the terrorism of hatred and intolerance which is bent on destroying human values, forcing us to question the sources of social and political power, and the creation and possible destruction of societal norms.
