    Freedom Song PDF/EPUB ☆ ↠ MOBI arnepistol.co freedom book, song book, Freedom Song ePUBA few uick thoughts about this lovely lovely bookIf The Golden Gateis a novel in verse this is poetry in prose And just as evocative Tinkling sounds came from outside of hammering and chiselling as labourers worked like bees and seven or eight storeyed buildings rose in the place of ancestral mansions that had been raised cruelly to the ground climbing up like ladders through screens of dust An old mansion opposite the veranda had been repainted white to its last banister and pillar so that it lookedlike a set of new teeth In the lawn before it a mali in khaki shorts alone unaware of being watched fussed over a row of potted plants In another sphere altogether birds took off from a tree or parapet or the roof of some rich Marwari's house startling and speckling the neutral sky Not a moment was still or like another momentChaudhuri is as good at writing about ordinary mortals as he is at laying out the view from a balcony He also invariably makes you smile Suddenly tak

    Freedom Song PDF/EPUB ☆ ↠ MOBI arnepistol.co freedom book, song book, Freedom Song ePUBThree short stories which are connected by all clearly being based on the author's barely fictionalized personal experiences There's not much plot here or change or character development or any of that sort of thing At least the writer is doing it on purpose as he describes early on in the first story But why did these houses for instance that one with the tall ornate iron gates and a watchman dozing on a stool which gave the impression that the family had valuables locked away inside or that other one with the small porch and the painted door which gave the impression that whenever there was a feast or a wedding all the relatives would be invited and there would be so many relatives that some of them probably the young men and women would be sitting bunched together on the cramped porch because there would be no space inside talking elouently about s

    Freedom Song PDF/EPUB ☆ ↠ MOBI arnepistol.co freedom book, song book, Freedom Song ePUBI've read the three short novels included in this volume over the past three year taking my time to savor the author's writing world view and his very localized stories whether they are Indian emigres in America or still at home Just completed Freedom Song the longest and lastand I'm reminded all over again what a terrific writer Chaudhuri is This is a family saga told in short sometimes only half a page long chapters It has the feeling of a Virginia Woolf novel oddly enough or of a Seurat painting where individual cells of color stand alone and yet relate closely to each other and then when you pull away reveal a much larger picture; and a surprisingly rich detailed and comprehensive view of this family If you have trouble with foreign names or customs then maybe this book is not for you it is obsessively Bengali Indian However reading is supposed to widen our world and o

    Freedom Song PDF/EPUB ☆ ↠ MOBI arnepistol.co freedom book, song book, Freedom Song ePUBThis is the third in the volume of three “novels” by Amit Chaudhuri though why they would be called novels is beyond me as there is no plot whatsoever“Freedom Song” is basically a beautifully written atmospheric series of pictures of moments of brief conversations of memories of passing thoughts and feelings of sights sounds smells and small everyday actionsAlthough I should have known better after reading “A Strange and Sublime Address” and “Afternoon Raag” I was impatient for something to happen in this story and found it hard to stop my mind from wandering and having to ask myself “no

    Freedom Song PDF/EPUB ☆ ↠ MOBI arnepistol.co freedom book, song book, Freedom Song ePUBAfternoon Raag is a strangely beguiling novella despite the fact that the plot doesn't amount to much the structure is wishy washy and the characters don't really develop at all Despite these considerable handicaps it held my attention

    Freedom Song PDF/EPUB ☆ ↠ MOBI arnepistol.co freedom book, song book, Freedom Song ePUBOnce I realised that Freedom Song was not a typical story with a beginning middle and end I happily allowed myself to get lost in Amit Chaudhury’s lyrical prose and became absorbed in the mundanities of the family life in Kolkata Having got to know the city well over the years I felt myself transported back there by the depth of the writing and when the book ended I felt the same sadness that I always feel when my trip is over and it is time to go home
