Pigeons of the Dome: Stories on Communalism is a collection of short stories depicting the various hues and shades of the demon of communalism that lurks within Indian society.A word that crops up repeatedly in the stories included here is fasaad in Urdu and danga in Hindi; translated as ‘riot’ in English, it has an entirely and peculiarly Indian connotation. When used in India, a riot is more often than not a clash between two communities and is a word loaded with communal intent unlike the original English usage whereby the word, free of any sociological baggage, merely refers to unruly or disorderly conduct by a group of people.Using the analogy of the beasts, exploring the situation in large cities and in small hamlets, the authors and translators bring to the fore the lurking danger that threatens the secular fabric of the country. An excellent collection that makes the reader pause and analyse.Printed Pages: 283.
