Title

Representation of the Historically Marginalized in Amitav Ghosh's The Hungry Tide

Abstract

This paper tries to bring out the historical factors and sociological connotations found in Amitav Ghosh’s The Hungry Tide. The Hungry Tide is set in the Sunderbans, a labyrinth of rivers and islands, often subjected to catastrophic floods and storms and famine. The paper begins with explaining the particularity of the word Sundarbans and how does the word Lusibari came to the particular island ‘Lusisbari’. The historical aspects behind Morichjhapi massacre is brought out in detail and how this tragedy affected the people and its after effects to the dispossessed and the displaced. Major thread to the people living in this island is the presence of man eating tigers there. The tigers found there are quite different from the ones found elsewhere. Always they are dangerous the reasons for that are brought forth and are explained. This article also exposes certain factors related to the naming of the particular kind of dolphins found only in that costal area and the naming of the word ‘cyclone’ and the connotations of this to the society as a whole.

Key Words

Morichjhapi massacre, nimnobarno community, Sunderbans, Sundari tree, Gangetic dolphin, cyclone.
