Reconnoitering the Caste Violence in David Davidar’s “The House of Blue Mangoes”


G Shalini, S Suganya

India is a gallery of languages and literatures and Indian Writing is the familiarity of its folks, their philosophy, convention, and the tactic they lead their existence. Violence is ubiquitous; and its roots are penetrative as well as pervasive in a society. And no society is free of all manifestations of violence. Therefore, it would be simplistic to believe that violence can be rooted out from any society. The renowned sociologist Francis Abraham also holds a similar view. In his book entitled Modern Sociological Theory: An Introduction, he says Social conflicts are inherent in the very nature of social organization; they cannot be eliminated altogether, only their expressions in specific contexts can be resolved (MST 112).David Davidar is a novelist, publisher, editor and anthologist in this emerging arena. Always literary minded, Davidar published short stories and poems in newspapers and literary magazines. In 2002, he published his debut novel, The House of Blue Mangoes. David Davidar lavishly communicates a sense of place and skillfully explores the confluence of home, identity, and family ties. He throws light on a gripping family Saga in which he focuses on the caste conflicts in the Indian diaspora.
