By Anand Pandian
In brilliant, artistic, and interesting prose, Pandian weaves jointly ethnographic encounters, archival investigations, and components drawn from Tamil poetry, prose, and renowned cinema. Tacking deftly among ploughed soils and plundered orchards, schoolroom classes and stationhouse registers, family hearths and riverine dams, he finds ethical lifestyles within the postcolonial current as a palimpsest of lines inherited from a number of pasts. Pursuing those legacies in the course of the fragmentary play of wish, dream, slander, and assistance, Pandian calls awareness not just to the ethical strength of normal life, but additionally to the inescapable strength of coincidence, probability, and failure within the making of moral lives. infrequently are the ethical coordinates of recent energy sketched with such intimacy and delicacy.
