there’s Avtar a private bus conductor from Amritsar who finds himself at a dead end after he loses his job and finds a girlfriend; there’s Randeep a college student from Chandigarh who is forced to take over the reins of running the household after his father’s stroke; and there’s Narinder a staunch Sikh from Britain who discovers that following the codes of her belief leads to an ethical impasse After their arrival in England Tochi Avtar and Randeep share a squalid flat with other migrants and work on a construction site until circumstances pull them apart and then together again Sahota describes their motivations and movements in pacing and prose that’s pleasingly unhurried so that the unfolding of the plot takes on an air of inevitability Attention is paid to minor characters be they a girlfriend an erratic co-worker a heartless employer or an ailing family member which creates an enviable verisimilitude Details of everyday adjustment to an unfamiliar environment — from clothes to food to cramped living quarters —are also carefully and tellingly chosen: “Soon the house was a whirl of voices and feet and toilet flushes and calls to get out of bed They filed down rucksacks flung over sleepy shoulders taking their lunchbox from the kitchen counter; next a rushed prayer at the joss stick and out into the cold morning dark in twos and threes at ten-minute intervals” Sahota lets the predicament of his characters as they move through time and space speak of the novel’s concerns: the injustice of treating people as higher or lower in a pecking order based on circumstances of birth the wretchedness of having to scrounge for work and the grimness of having no alternative but to carry on Large defeats and small triumphs are delineated in a manner that makes us care deeply about them and in this way the novel tunnels through news headlines of immigration and caste debates one of its transcendent strengths At one point early on when Tochi insists on plying his trade despite the warnings of others he realises that it’s “not just pride” that makes him do so: “It was a desire to be allowed a say in his life He wondered if this was selfish; whether in fact they were right and he should simply recognise his place in this world” This story of Tochi and his compatriots is an empathetic exploration of this question with Sahota proving to be an able guide to the migrant terrain of loyalty loss and longing Sanjay Sipahimalani is a book critic in Mumbai For all the latest Lifestyle News download Indian Express App More Related NewsPublished: July 25 2015 4:59 am Related News Written by Maya Pandit Book: Baluta Author/Translator: Daya Pawar/ Translated by Jerry Pinto Publisher: Speaking Tiger Pages: 336 pages Price: Rs 350 Daya Pawar’s Baluta has enjoyed an iconic status in Marathi literature for various reasons It was the first Dalit autobiography to arrive on the literary scene in 1978 and it challenged the universalist assumption of the dominant Marathi literary tradition that literature “celebrates” universal human values The hard-hitting portrayal of the life of an entire section of people from the Mahar caste who for centuries had been treated as beasts of burden as far less than human beings had jolted upper-caste Marathi readers out of their self-complacency in the post-Independence euphoria It signified a literary revolt against the Hindu Brahmanical caste system that had subjected people from lower castes to a cultural social economic and political quarantine for ages But Baluta was not merely a radical revolt against that quarantine It also had a sophisticated and linguistic creativity that was unparalleled in Marathi literature Pawar had used the narrative technique of two voices for the narration of the construction of his selfhood; one of the sophisticated educated self that listens and the other of the raw “caste” self in the making that speaks out (Vishram Bedekar is another author in Marathi to have used this technique of two narrative voices He had used it in his autobiography Ek Zad Ani Don Pakshi meaning “one tree and two birds”) Baluta had a language with a wonderful blend of various linguistic varieties of Marathi standard and dialectal sophisticated and raw with candid admissions and covert understatements Baluta had been the recipient of many awards yet the flipside of the coin was that it had also invited the wrath of people from Pawar’s own community for having displayed their life of humiliation and indignity to the public Thus Pawar had created linguistic literary and cultural history of sorts with his autobiography a milestone in Marathi literature Unfortunately Baluta had remained unavailable to the English readers for a long time Jerry Pinto’s translation has filled that void Since a sizeable number of Dalit texts from diverse Indian languages have been translated into English there is now a strong literary tradition of Dalit writing in English translation Dalit literature is a live cultural archive and with a good translation the repressed and the forgotten can re-emerge with a sharp edge of the politics of alterity Pinto’s translation contributes substantially to this tradition for various reasons His introduction to the translation revokes a cultural memory to open up the history of oppression of Dalits in diverse fields and also of resistance to that oppression in an era where the “shock value” of such writing is much diminished The introduction brings out the repressive social context and the personal angst and ambivalent attitudes of Pawar to his community to women and to the very act of reading and writing The translation interestingly is not only of Baluta and the life of colourful characters from the Mahar community; it also brings alive the dark and bright life of Mumbai that “colourful city” in the process of its journey to modernity Translating a Dalit text into English is not an easy exercise as the English language does not reflect the hierarchies of “caste” but Pinto carries out the task admirably well In the translation the history of what modernity meant to diverse sections of people in Mumbai also unfolds rather unintentionally through a language with the nuances of contemporary English This makes the translation quite readable and fluent but in the process the edgy tone and angst of the original caste voice gets somewhat blunted at times This also raises an interesting question: should the translation be deliberately “fluent” and reader-friendly or should it retain the challenges in the original text in terms of the linguistic and cultural codes that contemporary young readers may find a little difficult Pinto seems to have worked his way out of this dilemma with an interesting strategy He uses contemporary idiomatic English with its racy rhythms and colloquial tones in his translation; and then provides extensive footnotes to several culturally-loaded terms and practices in the text as well This blend seems to work well in enhancing the readability of the text as well as retaining its “alien” cultural codes to some extent The translation also carries a preface by Shanta Gokhale an eminent critic and translator who notes the distance of time between the original text and its translation and the blunted sensibilities of readers today Pinto’s translation will help readers to sharpen their awareness of the past and the radical tradition of Dalit writing in Marathi Pandit is professor School of Distance Education EFL University Hyderabad For all the latest Lifestyle News download Indian Express App More Related Newsit has finally been implemented.Looking at the success of the women PCR.
