Express reported With inputs from PTI Written by Ipsita Chakravarty | New Delhi | Published: November 30 2014 1:00 am Kashmiri writer Mirza Waheed Related News In his debut novel The Collaborator (2011) Mirza Waheed takes us to a Kashmir strewn with wild flowers and corpses In The Book of Gold Leaves he returns to Kashmir again to the Srinagar of Faiz and Roohi who meet and fall in love even as the city is slowly turned into a giant barracks by the Indian army Faiz is a Naqashi artist who spends his days painting intricate patterns on papier mache in his workshop But as the violence touches their lives directly he must leave home to follow his fate in the training camps across the border Roohi who stays behind watches the fabric of their old lives unravel In Delhi for the launch of his new book London-based Waheed 40 talks about driving his characters to madness about the insurgency about memory and about the city of his childhood Srinagar Excerpts: What compels you to write about Kashmir Do you think of yourself as a Kashmiri author I spent the most important 18 years of my life in Srinagar by the lake by all these magical places Your sensibility is going to be informed by where you grew up but also by what you read It’s never just one thing So why not Kashmir If Orhan Pamuk can write about Turkey all his life why can’t I write two novels about Kashmir where I grew up Will all my novels be set in Kashmir It depends on how a writer works I work with characters They’re my primary areas of concern How do they become mad for instance how do you drive them to madness How does a character move from being a delicate artisan to a somewhat committed fighter Faiz is an artist and lives in his own world And then terrible things happen But it’s one thing to be traumatised another to take up arms There is a moment of rupture the cessation of normality in his life He paints in his workshop That is normal for him Planning making sketches for his masterpiece that is normal Being with his large family at dinner that is normal And then meeting this girl falling in love with her and trying to be with her — that too is normal Suddenly there arrives this moment when all these ideas of normal existence are called into question and then destroyed Sometimes in tangible physical ways He’s a lower middle-class boy from the old city of Srinagar he’s had a small life he cannot deal with it But his choice to take up arms is deliberate He is not pushed into it because everyone around him is doing it Faiz has personal societal and political reasons for taking up arms He tells himself there is nothing else he can do In The Collaborator the village is emptied of young men who leave for the training camps Here Faiz himself leaves and there are all these boys disappearing Is this — what has been called Kashmir’s lost generation — a preoccupation a concern It is a concern but not just in terms of the lost generation of Kashmir not just as broad social and political themes I want to get inside their head and understand how this person will speak How does he explain the case to himself I don’t know if I’ve written a war novel disguised as a love story or a love story disguised as a war novel It is not a historical novel It is first and foremost the story of Faiz and Roohi and their families But they are located in a certain time Roohi reads the works of one of the finest prose writers in Kashmir called Akhtar Mohiuddin she reads the Pakistani poet Parveen Shakir she listens to Farida Khanum and even Bollywood music And this is the world of the novel as well The Bollywood image juxtaposed on the image of Kashmir has existed in the minds of young people for a long time How much do you draw from memory when you write What is it like to fictionalise what you remember Memory is a fascinating thing isn’t it To think about memory not just to have it If I remember a certain evening and this remembrance is from 30 years ago I would have a vague sense of what the evening was like But when I’m writing I will make it anew I will imbue it with something that belongs to the novel I’m writing now There’s a scene in the novel where Faiz’s mother is making kangris When she’s lighting it there is a red ember light and it is dusk and there is this particular winter light that appears in Srinagar All those disparate things — I like putting them together and seeing what happens One memory walks into another and another dives into the next and they will appear in strange places when you’re writing It seems as though Srinagar was one of the characters in the book How do you think the insurgency has changed the city In the 1990s the city turned into a war zone There were bomb blasts and shootings every other day Outside the city horrific tortures happened There was a torture chamber called Papa II I like to think it was Abu Ghraib before Abu Ghraib became Abu Ghraib The word “resilience” is thrown about a lot But I ask myself do they have a choice So yes it has changed the city the people It is a city of broken people marked for the rest of their lives by what happened to them what was done to them On the outside they’re normal but they conceal huge injuries Srinagar is a place of great melancholy Can you remember a Srinagar before the insurgency There were cinemas My “Cinema Paradiso” was Firdaus Cinema in Downtown I watched my first big screen film there I bunked school with some friends I was in Class 8 It was one of those grand old-world cinemas with a huge facade and a big space for the “now showing” poster and a lobby and ice cream We watched a ridiculous film called Tangewala which featured Rajendra Kumar And the old town is fascinating There’ll be magnificent houses with lattice windows and woodwork and ornate halls And then there will be a garish mall put up by some enterprising fellow who thinks this is development That is Srinagar now But the old spaces also remain In the novel you mention how the waterways of Srinagar were sealed up It seems oddly prescient when you read it after the floods when a swelling Jhelum had nowhere to go A part of me wishes I hadn’t written that But everyone knows what happened to the waterways of the city Srinagar has always existed with water as an intimate companion The canals the lakes the boats on the lake that were actually grocery shops Even in my childhood we could go on a picnic to the Mughal Gardens on a boat from the heart of the city There is a line in the novel where someone thinks water is not development boats are And that is not something that has happened only to Srinagar In the process of building swanky cities there has been a vast loss of ecosystems How political are you A novel will have its own politics of course but when you write is it a political act at all It doesn’t occur to me that I should write an apolitical novel or a political novel I write a book that is set in a certain place and whatever is happening in that time in history will definitely affect the lives of the people in that novel My primary commitment is to be as honest to a particular story and to a specific portrayal I think it’s true for all writers You don’t check boxes you don’t write according to quota For all the latest Lifestyle News download Indian Express App More Related News’ It’s a completely fictional show and
