 DESCRIPTION
spacer

Riots and After in Mumbai provides a synoptic record of events in Mumbai, focusing essentially on the history of riots in the city. Using this framework, it attempts to understand the sociopolitical and cultural realities of present-day Mumbai through a collection of narratives of the people affected by the communal riots of 1992–93.

The author uses a novel approach, combining historical records from the pre-Independence era (1893–1945) and personal interviews of both Muslims and Hindus living in the city. The book also looks into the political manipulations that ordinary people of both communities alike are subjected to by the ruling powers and political parties.

This volume will help the reader form a bridge between the Mumbai's past and present in order to better understand the relations between the two communities. On the one hand it undercuts the cosmopolitan image that the city holds, and on the other, it speaks volumes of the reconciliation—without any real justice—that has happened over the years in the minds of the people who live together despite much brutality and strife.
