    Playing bridge is the This is a cool thriller set in the French Riviera in the mids which features writer Somerset Maugham as a victim of blackmail. She spoke in Punjabi, an unusual thing, for there are very few Punjabi beggars in the city. He needed none of those things, needed not to hear the engines. Butalia's book is remarkable for the author's critical analysis of her own experiences as well as of the existing literature, and for her skillful demonstration of how the memory of Partition continues to affect India today. So much depends on who remembers, when, with whom, indeed to whom, and how. The first day was a little rough; even though regular gym workouts had kept him in good shape, it takes a while to refamiliarize yourself with desert mountain terrain after a year away.

    Their The other side of silence book affected me deeply. By including official documents along with personal stories, Butalia shows that in political circles the need to protect women's religious ""purity"" gave legitimacy to Partition--though women suffered much violence at the hands of their own communities. In his opening chapter, for instance, Loughery recounts the juicy story of the sex scandal at the naval training station at Newport, R. Believing that only by remembering and telling their stories can those affected begin the process of healing and forgetting, Butalia presents a sensitive and moving account of her quest to hear the painful truth behind the silence. Yet, as I read my way through it, I found myself becoming increasingly dissatisfied, sometimes even angry. The question might well be extended to Partition, for how do we know this event except through the ways in which it has been handed down to us: through fiction, memoirs, testimonies, through memories, individual and collective, through the communalism it unleashed and, only as one of these aspects, through the histories it has produced.

    Still, he'd always been partial to October, the early part of the month, so in that sense Geena's timing couldn't have been better. There are a hundred such questions. Excerpts are provided by Dial-A-Book Inc. In ''The Other Side of Silence'' he combines original archival research, mastery of the secondary historical literature, more than of his own interviews and a broad and deep knowledge of 20th-century American letters, theater and film into a narrative that is completely accessible to nonspecialists. He is completing a biography of William Sloane Coffin Jr.

To stop women looking like us. He couldn't quite decipher the scrawled signature. Below that were several lines of shaky backhand printing. This is a question I discuss further in the conclusion to this volume.

It was justifiable homicide - after all, they might otherwise be touched by a Muslim. Equally, if their husbands or sons were around, they tended to take over the interview, inadvertently or otherwise, making the women lapse into a sort of silence.

The Other Side of Silence

Through interviews conducted over a ten-year period and an examination of diaries, letters, memoirs, and parliamentary documents, Butalia asks how people on the margins of history—children, women, ordinary people, the lower castes, the untouchables—have been affected by this upheaval.

Before he crawled into his sleeping bag he sifted through the topos again to pick his next spot. But the other side of silence or discretion is also speech. There were their stories, as they told The other side of silence book, and there was what I learnt and understood from those stories.

Except these victimized women. They offer us a way of turning the historical lens at a somewhat different angle, and to look at what this perspective offers. When I began to track down Partition survivors, I was led, first of all, to survivors of the Rawalpindi violence who lived in a middle-class area in south Delhi.

The particular is harder to discover; it exists privately in the stories told and retold inside so many households in India and Pakistan. And in a couple of pages Loughery deftly undoes the late's effort in which many gay men engaged in a ''display of groundless self-congratulation'' to portray themselves as wealthier and more educated than the general population and therefore in need of no legal protection.

The Monument had more than three thousand square miles, second only among national parks to Yellowstone, and all sorts of terrain: the great trough of the Valley floor, with its miles of salt pan two hundred feet and more below sea level, its dunes and alluvial fans, its borate deposits and ancient borax works, its barren fields of gravel and broken rock, its five enclosing mountain ranges packed with hidden canyons, petroglyphs, played-out gold and silver mines, ghost towns.

There was no wind and The other side of silence book stillness, the utter absence of sound, was so acute it created an almost painful pressure against the eardrums. Alive or dead or dying, she had to be found, and quickly.

Some distance ahead there was higher ground. As I got more involved in the work, I found there was a great deal I wanted to say, in addition to what the people I spoke to had said.

From the women I learned about the minutiae of their lives, while for the most part men spoke of the relations between communities, the broad political realities. You welcomed challenges, you faced problems and responsibilities head-on. This book pierces that amnesia, elicits buried memories, and lays the foundations for a more evolved relationship between human beings on this subcontinent and their histories of gendered and communal violence.

Not for a second. Casey Dunbar. What was partition meant to achieve and what did it actually achieve? Now all you want to do is run away and hide from the world. I make no apologies for this.

How do we reach beyond the stories into the silences they hide; how can we assume that speech, the breaking of silence, is in itself a good thing? As it just so happens, a rich and famous writer needs someone to fill the fourth seat in a regular game at the Villa Mauresque.
