Two and a Half Rivers
|Other Details||8.50x5.50 inch|
A recently divorced doctor looking for seclusion, relocates to an isolated house on a riverbank. The following summer, dead bodies start turning up in the river, on the roads, in trains and on city crossings. Everybody calls it the 'Punjab Problem', as if it were a stubborn crossword puzzle. The doctor is kidnapped and nearly killed, once by terrorists for helping the police and once by police for helping the terrorists.
There also is a young Dalit girl, with the dream of becoming a dancer, and her soulmate Bheem, who leave their caste-ridden existence behind and relocate to Bombay. They have learnt the hard way that the preaching of oneness by their religion does not work in the real world.
Drawing its title from the historicity of the Partition, which has left in its wake only two and a half rivers to India from the land of the five rivers, Anirudh Kala's novel offers a poignant commentary on the turbulent connection between religion and terrorism.
Besides his professional passions, Anirudh Kala also likes reading Urdu poetry, hiking, and listening to Indian semi-classical music.
