Ravan And Eddie

by Kiran Nagarkar, Ravan And Eddie Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Ravan And Eddie books, An extremely funny novel about two larger-than-life heroes and their bawdy, Rabelaisian adventures in post-colonial urban India. 'Nagarkar is a genuine experimentalist: he combines in his writing a tremendous instinct for storytelling with a rare openness of imagination. He is willing to go where it takes him, express it in whatever form and through whichever language. What remains constant is his subversive pleasure in fiction for its own sake. It makes him one of our most precious writers.' - AnjumHasan, The Caravan Nagarkar's second novel (is) insouciant, savage, disarming and profound... (His) imagery has the quality of switch-blades flickering in the dark alley of the narrative. (His) humour is dark, but passionate. - ManjulaPadmanabhan, The Asian Age 'Ravan and Eddie remains one of the finest books written with Mumbai as a backdrop. It's uproariously funny, outrageously irreverent ... (and) reveals the city as a character, an actor, a living being.' - PankajUpadhyaya, Mumbai Mirror 'It's bawdy, it's wicked and it's irreverent. (Ravan and Eddie) is a wild romp through a quintessential Indian institution: the chawl.' - Business World

Book Review Ravan Eddie By Kiran Nagarkar

by Annemarie Kunz, Book Review Ravan Eddie By Kiran Nagarkar Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Book Review Ravan Eddie By Kiran Nagarkar books, Literature Review from the year 2013 in the subject South Asian Studies, South-Eastern Asian Studies, grade: 1,0, Charles University in Prague, language: English, abstract: Kiran Nagarkar's post-colonial novel was published in 1995. He tells a hilarious story set in the 1950s and 1960s about two boys: Ravan, a Maratha Hindu, and Eddie, a Roman Catholic. Both are growing up in the Central Works Department chawl number 17 in Bombay and even if they barely interact throughout the whole novel, their ways of life are very similar to each other. I will provide a brief summary of the book, introducing the characters and storyline and describe Nagarkar's style of writing, which takes turns in the ongoing plot and documentary episodes. The issue I want to concentrate on is the relationship and conflict between Hinduism and Christianity, two religions which coexist closely in the Indian chawl. The most important part of the book to refer to this topic is one documentary episode on neighbours, in which Nagarkar describes the life in the chawl in close detail and with much irony. Thereafter, I will draw on books and articles of primary and secondary literature, to evaluate Nagarkar's presentation of Hinduism and Christianity in Bombay. To do so, I will explain the circumstances of that time and show similarities to the novel. I will conclude that Nagarkar's novel provides a very good and real impression of what life and the Hindu-Christian relationship were like that time and is thus a good novel to delve into this era right after Indian independence. It is a good document of a contemporary witness, as I guess that Nagarkar has lived through a live in such a chawl himself or had at least some kind of first hand experience. As I was working with a German version of the novel, I am not using any direct quotations from the book.
