Delhi’s Meatscapes

release date: Jun 14, 2018
Delhi’s Meatscapes
Tracing the journey of meat from the farm to the meat shop and other workspaces of the butcher within the multi-sited margins in Delhi, the current volume intimately follows the lives of Qureshi butchers and other meat sector workers in this transforming mega-city. The author addresses the tensions that meat throws up in a bristling society whose stakes are now more than ever intense. She shows how meat is also a rising sector in the Indian economy, and fetches precious foreign exchange. Qureshi butchers stand at the crossroads of class, caste, stigma, religion, market, urban ecological policies, and a never-ceasing political debate around these issues. Delhi's Meatscapes brings together rare archival documents, vernacular sources, and ethnographic insights gleaned from several years of immersion in the city's meatscapes and is the first of its kind for urban anthropologists, economists, political scientists, policy planners and readers who wish to take a hard look at their own (non-)meat choices.

Two Cities

release date: Aug 11, 2020
Two Cities
From acclaimed poet and New Yorker writer Cynthia Zarin comes a deeply personal meditation on two cities, Venice and Rome—each a work of art, both a monument to the past—and on how love and loss shape places and spaces. Here we encounter a writer deeply engaged with narrative in situ—a traveler moving through beloved streets, sometimes accompanied, sometimes solo. With her, we see, anew, the Venice Biennale, the Lagoon, and San Michele, the island of the dead; the Piazza di Spagna, the Tiber, the view from the Gianicolo; the pigeons at San Marco and the parrots in the Doria Pamphili. As a poet first and foremost, Zarin’s attention to the smallest details, the loveliest gesture, brings Venice and Rome vividly to life for the reader. The sixteenth book in the expanding, renowned ekphrasis series, Two Cities creates space for these two historic cities to become characters themselves, their relationship to the writer as real as any love affair.

Orbit

release date: Mar 07, 2017
Orbit
With Orbit, prize-winning author Cynthia Zarin confirms her place as an indispensable American poet of our time. In this, her fifth collection, Zarin turns her lyric lens on the worlds within worlds we inhabit and how we navigate our shared predicament—the tables of our lives on which the news of the day is strewn: the president speaking to parishioners in Charleston, the ricochet of violence, near and far. Whether writing about hairpin turns in the stair of childhood, about the cat’s claw of anxiety, on the impending loss of a young friend, or how “love endures, give or take,” here is the poet who, in the title poem, “bartered forty summers for black pearls” and whose work is full of such wagers, embodied in playing cards, treble notes, snow globes, and balancing acts. Zarin reminds us that the atmosphere created by our experiences shapes and defines the orbit we move through. Along the way, she is both witness and, often indirectly, subject—“I do not know how to hold the beauty and sorrow of my life,” she writes. This book is an attempt at an answer.

Gopal's Gully

release date: Aug 01, 2021
Gopal's Gully
It did feel strange to see her lying cold and silent and then being carried away . . . But at the back of my mind was this growing anticipation-Sanjiv Maama was taking me to Mumbai! When Gopal's mother dies, his uncle brings him to Mumbai to get a job because he has few prospects as a Dalit boy in a UP village. Gopal is cast into the unfamiliar world of Squatters Colony, where he has no family or friends. He gets his first job at the bicycle shop owned by the sage Chacha and rapidly makes friends with the strange and diverse people who live in the community-Chacha's friendly daughter-in-law, the neighbourhood thug Raja, the three-legged Tiger and beautiful Ayesha. And he learns that when disaster strikes and lives fall apart, he too has a family in the gully. Zarin Virji's gripping debut describes the raw rollicking life of Mumbai's small neighbourhoods with vigour and zest.

Delhi's Meatscapes

release date: Jul 15, 2018
Delhi's Meatscapes
This work is about the Qureshi Muslim butchers of Delhi-an endogamous group among Muslims in India, traditionally involved in the Islamic Halaal slaughtering and selling of animal meat. Ethnographic studies on Qureshi Muslims in India have been rare. The aim of this work is to add to the small and scattered literature on social diversities among Indian Muslims. It looks at the lives of an urban occupational people who are engaged in the meat sector, the commodity meat, and the socio-political, economic, and cultural spaces that meat occupies in urban areas. In doing so, the author follows the transformation of the animal to diverse commodities and their trajectory from the farm to the meat shop. The author argues that the meat sector itself has undergone significant technological changes, mechanizing many of the tasks that were earlier performed manually. This has signalled a huge socio-economic shift for butchers and as well as the meat trade. The domain of the butchers it is argued was already polarized and problematized due to the complexities of meat in the Indian religious, political, and social landscape. This study thus aims to understand and document these shifts and contextualize the changing identities of a marginalized community.

The Ada Poems

release date: Aug 15, 2012
The Ada Poems
A dazzling story of obsessive love emerges in Cynthia Zarin’s luminous new book inspired and inhabited by the title character of Nabokov’s novel Ada, or Ardor: A Family Chronicle, who was the lifelong love of her half brother, Van. These electric poems are set in a Nabokovian landscape of memory in which real places, people, and things—the exploration of the Hudson River, Edwardian London, sunflowers, Chekhov, Harlem, decks of cards, the death of Solzhenitsyn, morpho butterflies—collide with the speaker’s own protean tale of desire and loss. With a string of brilliant contemporary sonnets as its spine, the book is a headlong display of mastery and sorrow: in the opening poem, “Birch,” the poet writes “Abide with me, arrive / at its skinned branches, its arms pulled / from the sapling . . . the birch all elbows, taking us in.” But Zarin does not “Destroy and forget” as Nabokov’s witty, tender Ada would have her do; rather, as she writes in “Fugue: Pilgrim Valley,” “The past’s / clear colors make the future dim, Lethe’s / swale lined with willow twigs.” Like all enduring love poetry, these poems are a gorgeous refusal to forget. A riveting, high-stakes performance by one of our major poets, The Ada Poems extends the reach of American poetry.

Mother Nature's Tongue

release date: Jan 01, 2012
Mother Nature's Tongue
"What is the point of teaching/learning English or any other subject when we are oblivious to safekeeping the beautiful natural world that God has entrusted us? What is the point of teaching/learning foreign languages when we are still foreigners to the language of our hearts and of our Mother Nature?" "Mother Nature's Tongue" is the narrative description of a young English teacher's attempts to clear his vision of education; a vision that was previously blurred by dominant compartmentalized traditional education. It describes how this teacher's environmental awareness was transformed in his childhood, and how he makes lemonades from lemons of his limitations and challenges in a test-driven traditional schooling system in Iran to promote his students' environmental awareness. This book provides fresh insights into holistic language education and it contains some practical ideas for those educators who want to set their goals beyond the means like methods, materials, language competence, tests etc.

Life is a Leaky Bucket
This is a biography about one woman's struggle to gain control of the blows life has dealt her with. Long before it became the bugbear term in the flying industry, 'Deep Vein Thrombosis' was already a terrifying disorder for the author. Diagnosed with a genetic disorder at age 43, her life has since been shadowed by the risk of life-threatening blood clots. Having seen her 50th birthday and counting the years steadily, she tells us her poignant story of courage and determination. Zarin recounts her struggle... Born into a blue-blood family in India, Zarin was accustomed to a lavish lifestyle. The India-Pakistan war threw her family into poverty and she had to adapt. Later on in life she had to endure scornings from her mother and betrayal by her brother coupled with her sickness; yet she remained a fighter. This is more than a tale of one remarkable woman's survival of personal medical crisis. It is an inspiring call to each of us to re-examine our own lives and to have the courage to make the changes where they really matter.
