Terrains and Tropes is a blog which aims to contextualize South Asian Literature not only through reading the literary works that have been produced, but to understand them through the themes that inherently make them unique. This blog originally began as a part of a course work as Dr. Arnapurna Rath, our instructor of the course “Tropes of Time and Topography: Select Fiction from South Asia” at Indian Institute of Technology Gandhinagar suggested to design this blog.During our course work, we went through some South Asian fictions covering almost the entire topography of the region from Pakistan, Bangladesh, Nepal, Sri Lanka, and India. The blog hosts brief reviews and discussions of some of the South Asian novels.
There are few reviews by Ms. Palak Gupte who was a colleague sharing this course. I have not removed her articles and they remain as sweet reminder of the times when we did our course work together. The blog began in 2012 and I have not being able to continue for a long time. However, it was surprising to find that people were still reading it and am happy come up with new reviews soon.
