Book Description
Imagine waking up one morning to learn that all your rights as citizen have been suspended this moment onwards. Imagine living the way the State tells you to – being told how, where and when to laugh, live or love. Imagine constant surveillance – all your acts, words, thoughts watched, all forms of expression subverted for the purpose of nation - building. ‘Work More, Talk Less’, yell microphones as you walk down the streets... But don’t lose heart – the trains are on time! India, mid-1970s. A time of democracy ruled with an iron fist. In this landscape of turmoil and unrest tours the Naya Savera Band, dreaming of ‘change’ and stoking the fire of rebellion with music. But as reality intrudes and hostilities underlying the common dream rear up, idealist and poet VP, scholarly Master and ever-pragmatic Parvez drift away from each other... until their paths cross again in Delhi, in the middle of the biggest civil crisis to ever grip the nation. Once again, the trio f ind themselves reluctantly uniting against their common enemy – the State. Will they escape the ever-watchful eyes of the government? Will their dreams of an egalitarian, socialist democracy come to nothing? Will the Naya Savera Band raise its voice in song again? Find out in Vishwajyoti Ghosh’s graphic re-imagining of one of the most seminal moments in the history of Indian democracy.
