Fiction as Social Archive : A Comparative Study of Amitav Ghosh`s The Hungry Tide And Indra Sinha`s Animal`s People

Description

The Hungry Tide and Animal's People are two literary texts where recent historical events reverberate through their content. How the authors Amitav Ghosh and Indra Sinha represent them forms a very fascinating area of study. The impact of that particular historical context on common men and women is a major theme in these novels. Both Ghosh and Sinha have drawn their sources for writing from newspapers and journals. They use journalistic jargon and employ a number of journalistic techniques in their novels. They almost create the impression that they are writing pieces of solid investigative journalism with a touch of individualism. The two texts can been considered as fictional archives which contain a lot of information regarding the people, places and things on which they are based.
