Inhaltsangabe: In the sleepy, North Indian town of Amarpur, a young boy named Baba Singh Toor secretly kills a moneylender in a moment of blind sorrow and rage, setting events in motion that will shape the coming generations of Toors.
Hardened by a life of serial misfortune and loss, many years after the murder for which he was never caught, Baba Singh infects his son, Manmohan, with the misery and guilt he was unable to overcome. Two generations later, his grandson, Darshan, the most loyal and unassuming of the Toors, finds himself dragged to the center of conflict as the family demands that he correct past wrongs. How will a chest containing a collection of Baba Singh's numerous life tragedies allow Darshan to free himself from the dysfunction that has amassed over three lifetimes? And will he live up to his name--meaning one who is blessed with clarity of sight--to finally bury the shame of a long-ago concealed crime?
Spanning continents and cultures, chronicling three generations of Indian men--traveling from the Punjab to Fiji to San Francisco--Darshan is the story of one family's great capacity for forgiveness, learned after nearly a century of heartache.
An ambitious, epic debut novel that finely balances historical elements of nations struggling under Colonial regime with the tragedy of men who refuse to release their sorrow, written in keenly descriptive, fluid, and penetrating prose.
In 1911 rural India, Baba Singh Toor commits a shocking act of violence to avenge a crippling loss, setting a secret in motion that will haunt--and claim--the Toors for generations.
Hardened by a crime for which he was never caught, Baba's past casts shadows over his sons, even as the era of British Colonial tyranny and oppression reaches its height. In the distant colony of 1940s Fiji, his son, Manmohan, a virtuoso of enterprise, bears the burden of his father's sin, plagued by an all-consuming insecurity that suffocates his own children. And twenty-five years later in San Francisco, Darshan--inextricably linked to his grandfather, Baba Singh, by both birth and fate--finds himself dragged to the center of conflict. Held accountable for the Toors' dark history, he labors to honor his name--meaning one who is blessed with clarity of sight--attempting to keep the family from irreparably splintering apart. A novel in three parts, Darshan is a raw examination of the lifetimes required to reconcile one man's fatal mistake.
An ambitious, epic debut novel that finely balances historical elements of nations struggling under Colonial rule with the tragedy of men who refuse to release their sorrow, written in keenly descriptive, fluid, and penetrating prose.
