The Bag: A Novel
The Bag: A Novel0 0 5 Scritto da: Arup Kumar Dutta
The novel probes the psyche of a morally righteous village youth with strong ideals and big dreams, compassionately delineates his transformation into a militant, and explores the complexity of the relationship that exists between him and his adolescent younger brother—all the while positioning them within their immediate cultural and physical landscapes. The tale unfolds at a lethargic pace, though occasionally punctuated with short yet furious bursts of violent action, leading inexorably
to a dramatic climax. In the process, the reader is subjected to an overwhelming gamut of experiences and emotions, often brutal and inevitably tragic. Objectively tracing the broader history of insurgency in Assam and providing an in-depth, almost insider’s glimpse into the life of a militant, The Bag is indubitably the most powerful insurgency-related novel to have come out of North-East India in recent times.
