Book Description
In the summer of 1999, while the Kargil War was being fought, Amitava Kumar married a Pakistani Muslim. That event led to only between India and Pakistan but also between Hindus and Muslims inside India. the result is this fiercely personal essays on the Idea of the enemy. Written with complete honesty and with no claims to journalistic detachment, this book chronicles the complicity that binds the writer to the rioter. Unlike both the fundamentalists and the secularists, Kumar finds or makes utterly human those whom he opposes. More than a travelogue which takes the reader to Wagah, Patna, Bhagalpur, Karachi, Kashmir, and even Johannesburg, this book then becomes a portrait of the people the author meets in these places, people dealing with the consequences of the politics of faith.
