Abstract

History has been the major preoccupation of the recent Indin novelists in English. There is a view that of our contemporary Indian English novelists are overburdened with history, and the novels are so full of details from Indian history that end up sagging under its weight. Yet Mistry’s novels do not suffer from such excess. Rohintin Mistry’s novel A Fine Balance, published in 1977, is the story pf how four characters- Dina Dalal, Om and Ishvar Dariji and Manek Kohlah, come together to live in the madness of Bombay. This can be labelled a historical novel as it presents some of the important events in the history of the post-independence India and the way these events in the history of the post-independence India and the way these affect the lives of the ordinary people. The novel focuses on two such events, the partition coupled with Indian independence in 1947 and the state of Emergency between 1975 and 1977.

Key Words

Historical Events before and after independence, partition, struggle, the impact of violence.
