Inside this Book – I AM THIRTY YEARS old and that is nothing. I know what this sounds like, and I hesitate to begin with something so obvious, but let me say it anyway, at the risk of sounding naïve. And let it stand alongside this: six years ago, a man I knew vanished from his home in the mountains. He vanished in part because of me, because of certain things I said, but also things I did not have, until now, the courage to say. So, you see, there is nothing to be gained by pretending to a wisdom I do not possess. What I am, what I was, and what I have done—all of these will become clear soon enough. This country, already ancient when I was born in 1982, has changed every instant I’ve been alive. Titanic events have ripped it apart year after year, each time rearranging it along slightly different seams and I have been touched by none of it: prime ministers assassinated, peasant-guerrillas waging war in emerald jungles, fields cracking under the iron heel of a drought, nuclear bombs cratering the wide desert floor, lethal gases blasting from pipes and into ten thousand lungs, mobs crashing against mobs and always coming away bloody. Consider this: even now, at this very moment, there are people huddled in a room somewhere, waiting to die. This is what I have told myself for the last six years, each time I have had the urge to speak. It will make no difference in the end.
Inside this book –The Far Field PDF Book by Madhuri Vijay – AFTER THE FUNERAL AND its gritty, exhausting aftermath, I went back to college for my final-year exams, which I barely passed. Without waiting for the inane graduation celebrations, I packed up my things and returned to Bangalore. Apart from my mother’s absence, nothing had changed. My father still woke early and drove to the gym, sweatband around his wrist, towel over his shoulder. Stella still came in the late mornings, after my father left for the factory. She let herself in with her own key, and, over the next few hours, she scrubbed the vessels, ran the washing machine, swabbed the floors, ironed our clothes, dusted the bookshelves, watered the plants, and cooked enough food for a family of five. It was only I, it seemed, who had nothing to do. So I began to go out. I agreed to everything. People I hardly knew invited me to clubs to hear their DJ friends play, and later to someone’s flat, where the music was always too loud, the floor gluey with spilled beer, and the inevitable poster of Bob Marley grinned down from the wall like some affable, white-toothed deity. I remember faces floating from unlit corners to ask me questions to which my answer was always the same. Yes, I said when someone asked if I wanted another drink. Yes, I said when someone’s hot breath whispered into my neck, Does this feel good? I lived by the word, kept it ready under my tongue. Yes, I said when they asked if I would be all right.
