    “The true tragedy of routinely spent life is that its wastefulness does not become apparent till it is too late”This uote does not reflect the theme of this book but it caught my eye in this green covered book in my hand when today I was flipping its pages thinking what to write about it It’s tea time and there is a tray ready on a side table with two pieces of cookies A suirrel on the wall of the garden is eating

    A fascinating and gripping read given an insight into a subaltern history In particular I enjoyed the exploration of language and who is given the ability to write history However there were slightly cringeworthy elements tacked onto the end of each chapter especially the final lines of the novel This cheapened the novel slightly and seemed a bit out of place

The Hungry Tide

In de Golf van Bengalen ligt een uitgestrekte archipel van eilanden de Sundarbans genaamd In dat gebied vermengen de wateren van de Himalaya zich met het inkomend getij van de zee Dagelijks verdwijnen duizenden hectaren oerwoud in het water om uren later weer droog te vallen De plaatselijke kol. If Shadow Lines enthralled you Amitav Ghosh s latest masterpiece the Hungry Tide will sweep you off your feet and into the precarious waters of the SundarbansIn the typical Ghosh style the narrative moves fluidly between past and present You will be transported into the mindset of the superstitious yet brave folk who have adapted themselves to the constant ebb and flow of the tide and are living in continuous fear of the Bengal tigers The tide begins to turn with the advent of two seekers from the outside world Piyali Roy an Indian American marine biologist in search of the Irrawaddy dolphins and Kanai Dutt an urbane translator from New Delhi who s there to retrieve his deceased uncle Nirmal s journal Their lives become intertwined particularly with Fokir an illiterate but proud fisherman who has the rivers in his heart As the narrative progresses they are forced to respect nature in order to survive a

Rzoek doen in de uitgestrekte en gevaarlijke Sundarbans en laat zich daarbij begeleiden door Fokir een ongeletterde man uit de omgeving Kanai wordt haar vertaler Vanaf dat moment begint het tij te keren Piya's zoektocht naar de biologische omstandigheden wordt vooral een zoektocht naar zichzelf. One of Amitav Ghosh s best books I would say The setting of the book is in the Sundarbans in Eastern India a vast forest in the coastal region of the Bay of Bengal and considered one of the natural wonders of the world There is not much of a story as such in the novel but there are excellent characters and visual depictions of the Sundarbans The landscape plays a prominent role in the book One could almost breathe Sundarbans However unlike forests in Himalayan ranges in the North Sunderbans display a certain kind of calm and beauty but also leave a trail of heavy suffocation especially during the monsoon they are dark humid uninviting and there is always a sense of danger lurking in the airOn the brighter note I loved reading about the landscape shown in the book it is like I am knowing deeply a character with its varied shades in the novel The fact that such a region exists with its flor
