characters Delhi by Khushwant Singh ´ eBook, PDF or Kindle ePUB Na miriade di personaggi che hanno fatto di Delhi il luogo mistico che essa è Un viaggio epico in cui la città dell'Impero viene consegnata per sempre all'immortalità della letteratura. Delhi History in the Garb of EroticaHistory in the garb of Erotica or is it the other way round Would be an apt epithet for Delhi A Novel by Khushwant SinghSynopsis A lecherous historian cum writer is in a bad phase of his career that he takes a part time job as a tourist guide in Delhi As a guide he ensures a perennial supply of foreign memsahibs for himself with whom he has innumerable flings He takes these tourists and his hijda mistress around Delhi for sightseeing thus visiting various places of historical significance This narrative is interposed in alternate chapters with memoirs of personalities from the past which includes the likes of Timur Nadir Shah Aurangzeb A devotee of the Sufi saint Nizamudeen Auliya A British era builder A Gandhi hater to name a few The whole book is laced with a thick veneer of sarcasm which makes it difficult to make out how much of it are genuine statements and how much of it are Deliberate Doosras Through the memoirs of the bad guys of history he has gone so far as to condone sarcastically or not is moot their acts Aurungzeb justifying his fanaticism and hatred toward Dhara Shikoh Nadir Shah justifying massacres that he brought upon Delhi and through the words of a builder he claims the period of British rule in India her golden period and uite trenchantly remarks that Indians have done harm to India than the British He also goes ahead and states that had it been Germans French or Russians Gandhis and Nehrus would have been sent to gallows for longThe last but one chapter takes Gandhi giri head on He minces no words when he calls Gandhi a hypocrite As per an anti Gandhi character in the book Gandhi while fasting has a continuous supply of orange juice and he breaks his fast with a glass of orange juice or when he indicts RSS for propagating hatred against Musalmmans and Christians in the inchoate days of independence He is even indifferent when he implicitly slams his own community Sikhs for teaming up with the British during 1857 mutinieswhich apparently led to the uashing of the mutiny in DelhiTowards the end of the book circa 1984 it takes us through the Operation Bluestar Blunder of Indira Gandhi her assassination on account of that and then the dire repercussions that followed That leaves the book with an implicit statement of how India is anarchy prone how vicious is communalism and religious fanaticism and how baneful is political bigotry These factors leave the writer pensive and disturbed in the endWhat makes the book uniue according to me is that it positions itself against the popular version of history And it has to be given to the Old Man for his audacity in coming up with a book which speaks about the misfortunes inflicted upon Delhi throughout various phases in history not from the victim s but from the perpetrators perspectives and to the level of justifying them watch out for sarcasms One big negative of the book which I presume could have led to it being branded as dirty is its erotic content Not a single chapter passes by without an obnoxious dosage of carnal indulgences of its characters However the Dirty Old Man can be excused for this as probably he was trying to sell history in the garb of erotica Rajeev A Nair

This was so horrendously bad that I had forgotten all about having read this book I guess my brain was trying to subconsciously suppress the memory of it However my brain being the way it is just as well randomly popped this book up at me on a Monday evening because that is the sort of thing my brain likes to do NOTHING about the book you might initially read see or hear about would remotely suggest the level of bad ness this book entails I read this on a recommendation of a friend s and since then I have been than wary with recommendations especially in instances where they involve vapid prose detailing badly written sex scenes as gimmicks As for the historical fiction angle forget about it You d be better off with Let s Learn Numbers or My First Book of Alphabet to get better enlightenment instead

characters Delhi by Khushwant Singh ´ eBook, PDF or Kindle ePUB Narratore dell'opera una vera e propria saga che si estende per circa seicento anni è un vecchio sporcaccione che ama Delhi come ama la sua hijda la sua prostituta preferita Bhagmati met. I was annoyed from the first to the last page The premise was very interesting Delhi s history from the Mughal Empire 1526 to the murder of Indira Gandhi 1984 Chapters alternate from present time in which we read above all about useless sex scenes among the main character and a hijra prostitute to ancient time where the past revives thanks to the first person narration of different charactersI couldn t understand which was the fictional part and which were real historical events it was too confusing I also couldn t understand how much of Singh s personal opinions have been added to the story Perhaps people who know every single event of the Mughal Empire will enjoy much this book I also didn t learn something new about Indian history because the whole story was too confusing and there were many useless parts like the chapters dedicated to present time It seems to me that the author gave too much importance to sex scenes and the bloody massacres among Muslims Hindus and Sikhs talking about them in a too detailed way It was as if these parts were important than the historical events After a while I had a feeling of mental discomfort reading about all this gory killing because it seemed that all these people were taking pleasure in killing It was as if the author disliked all Indians regardless of their religion and depicted them as bloody killers I have read a few historical fiction and I usually like them but in my opinion Singh failed and it s a pity because I have read and liked Train to Pakistan It could have been much better if the reader would have been able to discern among real historical events and fictional parts and if we could understand which parts were the author s personal opinions but perhaps it s only my fault because I don t know a lot about the Mughal EmpireMi sono annoiata dalla prima all ultima pagina La premessa sembrava molto interessante la storia di Delhi dall Impero Moghul ca 1500 fino all uccisione di Indira Gandhi 1984 Si alternano capitoli dedicati al presente in cui si parla solo di sesso tra il personaggio principale e una prostituta ermafrodita a capitoli in cui si fa rinascere il passato attraverso la narrazione in prima persona di diversi personaggi Non si capisce cosa di ci che viene raccontato appartiene alla realt storica e uali parti sono solo finzione o considerazioni personali dello scrittore Forse chi conosce per filo e per segno tutti gli imperatori Moghul e la storia del loro impero sar capace di apprezzare uesto tomo di uasi 500 pagine Non mi rimasto assolutamente nulla di uesto libro tranne una sensazione di noia e di fastidio dovuta non solo al fatto che non si riesce a discernere tra realt e finzione ma anche perch lo scrittore sembra dare pi importanza ai sanguinosi massacri tra musulmani ind e sikh descrivendoli minuziosamente piuttosto che agli eventi storici rilevanti
