Riots and after in Mumbai
Chronicles of Truth and Reconciliation
The author uses a novel approach, combining historical records from the pre-Independence era (18931945) and personal interviews of both Muslims and Hindus living in the city. The book also looks into the political manipulations that ordinary people of both communities alike are subjected to by the ruling powers and political parties.
This volume will help the reader form a bridge between the Mumbais past and present in order to better understand the relations between the two communities. On the one hand it undercuts the cosmopolitan image that the city holds, and on the other, it speaks volumes of the reconciliationwithout any real justicethat has happened over the years in the minds of the people who live together despite much brutality and strife.
