Book Description
Waterlines combines clasic works with the best of contemporary writing. Here is Rabindranath Tagore`s brilliant tale of a young widow`s passion. Agyeya recounts his aunt`s courageous battle against the Beas. Cobras and others and other river creatures meet crocodile man Rom Whitaker. Arundhati Roy and Advaita Mallabarman offer river stories with dark currents. Mukul Sharma traces the travails of Biharis living in the shifting diara lands. Nita Kumar`s lyrical account of the pleasures of the Banaras ghats includes bhang-induced `latrine`. Anand Pandian presents early twentieth century Tamil verse honouring Pennycuick, the British engineer who damned the Periyar. Ruchir Joshi pays homage to the Hooghly and Howrah Bridge. A. K. Ramanujan and A. K. Mehrotra, the Ganga, the Narmada, the Kaveri - they are all here. With its unexpected bends and delightful views, Waterlines is a tribute to rivers that you will enjoy dipping into.
