Independence, Trauma and Bloodshed: Revisiting Manohar Malgaonkar
This paper attempts to tangentially explore Manohar Malgaonkar’s A Bend in the Ganges published during three-and-a-half decades which are written in English. The specific focus will also be on some works published between the mid1950s and the late 1980s. The objective of this study will be to explore some partition narratives and unfold the different intentions that made so many novelists to produce fiction that reflected upon the most important historical phenomenon.
