Here is the link to my detailed review of the novel which was published in The Friday TimeshttpswwwthefridaytimescomromancThe text is reproduced belowSet in canal colonies of the Punjab Ali Akbar Nati s much anticipated debut novel Nou Lakhi Kothi is as enticingly rich and multi faceted as the land that he is so unabashedly in love withNati has already made his mark as a poet of vibrant images enigmatic metaphors a brooding sense of history and metaphysical explorations His two anthologies of poetry Baiyaeen Bastioon Mein 2010 and Yaoot Kai War 2013 provide ample testimony His haunting series of poems Safeer e Laila portray the cyclical vagaries of time and civilizational rise and decline that at times remind one of N M Rashid s masterpiece Hasan Koozagar but are nevertheless enthrallingly original That he is an immaculate observer and highly gifted capturer of the geographical and cultural topography of Punjab has already come to light in aim Din 2012 his wonderful volume of short stories In Nou Lakhi Kothi Nati draws on his poetic prose and deep intimacy with the land and people of Punjab to craft a compelling tale of enmity revenge social mobility opportunism past glory and lost grandeurUnder the British Raj Punjab witnessed wide scale technological changes and uniue social engineering The new hydraulic economy of the canal colonies led to displacement of riverine tribes as well as mass migration and resettlement of agricultural people from elsewhere in the province to cultivate the new and rich canal fed tracts in Western Punjab Colonial perceptions of the diversity and differences of local traits and varying potential for loyalty and its conseuent patterns of patronage led to the administrative and legislative consolidation of the highly problematic binaries of agrarian and non agrarian castes martial and non martial races and criminal and non criminal tribesMeanwhile colonial systems of administration and instruments of formal justice endeavored to entrench themselves Rescuing disputants from the at times exploitative dynamics of indigenous dispute resolution systems the colonial thana court and kachehri assumed a central role as arbiters of disputes and symbols of the naya anoon as well as favorite new arenas for further embroilment and perpetuation of such disputes freuent coercive use of the law and the reconfigured leveraging of local influence and power The commodification titling and conseuent facility in the transfer of land the erosion of multiple conventional and informal communitarian claims on its produce and the tussle between indigenous money lending and modern state backed credit further impacted village economies rural power dynamics and social relationships Punjab also became pivotal not just as a bread basket but as the primary breeding ground of fighting troops This necessitated further carving out of enclaves of privilege for loyal landlords active and absentee traditional local notables and the nouveau riche as well as retired military officers and additional uses of land in service of military imperatives and avarice Land alienation powers and reward of arable land were thus central to the colonial incentive structures envisioned to build and sustain the Raj in the decades following 1857Against the backdrop of these major upheavals and reconfigurations Nati s novel is primarily set in the decades immediately preceding Indian independence The protagonists face a foreseeable future that could not be in greater contrast For William who is sailing to India to take up appointment as an officer of the Indian Civil Service it is the legacy of an illustrious family that has ruled the land for generations City bred and educated Ghulam Haider meanwhile is returning to his vast village fiefdom in the wake of his father s sudden death and finds himself surrounded by armed loyalists and family retainers fearful of an attempt on his life from arch enemies of his father Maulvi Karamat on the other hand is the imam of a tiny and decrepit village mosue for whom the difference between survival and penury is the largesse of chapatis that his son Fazal Din collects daily from the homesteads in lieu of freuent free labor and running of chores apart from his father s ritualistic services which are then sold every month in a nearby market to keep the family afloatEvents overtake them and intertwine their lives in important inextricable ways over the next several years William harbors strong and paradoxical emotions for the land reminiscent of Kipling in certain ways where he grew up and to which he relates deeply Of a romantic bent and zealous about introducing various reforms he finds himself posted as an Assistant Commissioner in an arid tehsil in district Firozpur in east Punjab There he comes face to face with the inertia of the vast clerkdom that thrives in the bureaucratic culture the revenue extraction monomania of his higher officials race and class as the great dividers of people widespread native alienation from colonial forms of governance and justice the misery of poverty and the ever simmering religious communal divides that threaten to develop into larger conflicts William adores the land even if he looks upon most of its inhabitants as crude and inferior though at times he also appears much amenable to pulling down the walls between the rulers and the ruled than the pukka sahibs He wants to see the landscape prosperous and lush with crops and groves as much to benefit locals and to boost revenues as to assuage his aesthetic sensibilities Meanwhile Ghulam Haider finds himself besieged by Sardar Sodha Singh and his clan and allies who want to settle old scores with his father Sher Haider At the same time Maulvi Karamat stumbles upon career enhancement possibilities that promise an escape from his life of destitution but also pose ideological difficulties as well as challenges of personal re invention Thus embarks a tight and riveting story that explores life in late colonial Punjab from multiple and very different vantage pointsuoteThere have seldom been such vivid rural descriptions since the dream like short stories of Balwant SinghuoteNati skillfully weaves a narrative which is realistic probing and reflective At the heart of the novel is the genesis of a uintessential Punjabi village dispute and its deterioration into a bloody conflict with religious overtones as well as complex underpinnings forged by the contradictions between colonial modes of justice and law enforcement and local customary norms and cultural practices Formal law s coercive potential the resilient leverage of social status and communal and governmental networks and the parallel functioning of colluding as well as conflicting systems of authorities provide fascinating sub themes The novel deconstructs the juggernaut of the colonial legal bureaucratic machine into its individual cogs and wheels and pervading mood offering delightful vignettes about the pomposity of the gora sahib and even greater pomposity of the memsahib as well as the resentful servility of the native cronies and underlings At the same time Nati s forte is his savory and multi tiered description whether of traditional haveli architecture his reservoir of local construction terms seems inexhaustible or the contours and features of the landscape of Eastern and Central Punjab which he paints with the evocativeness of a gifted impressionist Despite his stark realism the poet Nati also makes several appearances further augmenting the appeal of his prose This is when his fascination for the romance of the land takes over and he lovingly describes the glorious vistas trees crop fields waterscapes lights and shades and the shifting seasons This reviewer has seldom come across such vivid rural descriptions since the dream like short stories of Balwant Singh with their nocturnal paintings of chivalrous Punjabi bandits riding in the long moonlit summer nights or the thrilling hunting escapades set in the rugged mystery lands of the gorgeous Potohar plateau by Sabir Hussain RajputYet while romancing the Punjab his favorite muse Nati does not allow it to distract him from his essential task of storytelling and of telling a story that is ultimately dark and brutal The novel s mood gets progressively bleak and at times sardonic as the partition of India approaches as the culture of pillage and the political economy of evacuee properties take root while millions languish and die or find themselves bewildered by the sudden loss of past lives and cherished landscapes In its post partition sections a deep melancholy and nostalgia imbue the narrative as Nati s characters endeavor to come to grips with new boundaries and classifications William s character in particular adopts a highly memorable pathos and resonanceNati s earlier works have demonstrated his great agility with words for not just conveying ideas and insights but also for recreating special moods and particular ways of living Once again his language is a treat to read as he brings forth distinctive Sikh and Muslim rural dialects and often employs a combination of Punjabi and Urdu to promote a hybrid idiom that is better suited to capture the nuances of Punjabi culture and speech A deep empathy for the insignificant the ignored and the disempowered resonates throughout but on the whole Nati retains literary objectivity and elegance and resists didactic pontification His resort at times to satire is also effective and piercingLike an accomplished dastango he sits in the village chopal under the giant peepal and beckons you with the promise of his tale of a famous carnage of heroes eaten up by dust and of the ruins of a past that will never return It is a tale of Punjab and is as enigmatic and wondrous as the land that it is set in As the voice in his celebrated poem Safeer e Laila implores Safeer e Laila yehi khandar hain jahan sai aghaaz e dastaan haiZara sa baitho to mein sunaoon O Laila s emissary these are the very ruins where the epic beginsStay awhile and I shall narrate Osama Siddiue is the
