Bombay Modern: Arun Kolatkar and Bilingual Literary Culture

Anjali Nerlekar

ISBN: 9789386338334 | Price: INR 495

In his new novel, Sujit Saraf takes readers on an epic journey from Shekhavati in Rajasthan to the Calcutta of the early twentieth century, to Bogra in East Bengal, and to a village in Bihar in newly independent India. A sprawling, compulsively readable narrative, it follows the story of Harilal as he sets up Harilal & Sons, a shop selling jute, cotton, spices, rice, cigarettes and soap, that grows into a large enterprise. It is also the sweeping tale of his two wives and ever-burgeoning family of sons, daughters, grandchildren, great-grandchildren and great-great-grandchildren—the two strands of family and business inextricably fused because a Marwari’s life is defined by what he ‘deals in’.

Spanning seven decades of an era that saw great tumult in India and Bangladesh, Harilal & Sons is a wonderfully evocative, powerful and capacious narrative—overflowing with a profusion of characters, events and places—contained within the singular life of one man who ‘dealt in jute and grain’.


Anjali Nerlekar’s Bombay Modern is a close reading of Arun Kolatkar’s canonical poetic works that relocates the genre of poetry to the center of both Indian literary modernist studies and postcolonial Indian studies. Nerlekar shows how a bilingual reading of Kolatkar’s texts uncovers a uniquely resistant sense of the ‘local’ that defies monolinguistic cultural pressures and straddles the boundaries of English and Marathi writing. And as she does this, she uncovers an alternative and provincial modernism through poetry.

Eschewing any attempt to define an overarching or universal modernism, Bombay Modern delimits its sphere of study to ‘Bombay’and to the ‘post-1960’(the sathottari) period in an attempt to examine at close range how this poetry redeployed the regional, the national and the international to create a very tangible yet transient local.
