Interview: Acclaimed Writer-Journalist NIRENDRA DEV On His Books

[NIRENDRA NARAYAN DEV]Washington, DC, March 27, 2011 (Washington Bangla Radio) Nirendra Narayan Dev is a well-known name in the world of political journalism in India. His books Ayodhya - Battle for Peace, The Talking Guns North East India, and Godhra - A Journey to Mayhem, have been critically acclaimed in observers and commentators on the political scenario of India. He is not only a writer, he is also associated with and a special correspondent of one of India’s and the World's most revered news dailies - The Statesman. Nirendra spared a few minutes to talk to Bidisha on WBRi about the political scene in India, about journalism, plagiarism and his current and future projects.


"Expatriates from South Asia spread fanaticism in the region" writes Nirendra Dev in "Ayodhya : Battle For Peace": Book Review

[Cover of Nirendra Dev' "Ayodhya : Battle For Peace"]
Nirendra Dev shows some confidence to pen the lines effectively often punctuated with sarcasm - this new book is an exploration of common people’s changing soul through the history of decades-old confrontation.

Calcutta, March 22, 2011 (Washington Bangla Radio) Expatriates from the South Asian nations settled in the west also play a major role with regard to the growth of communalism in the region, says a new book on India’s highly disturbing Ayodhya dispute even as it claims that the future “cannot be very good for the sectarian forces” either in India or even in Pakistan and Bangladesh. Penned by a New Delhi-based Bengali journalist, Nirendra Dev, the book, ‘Ayodhya: Battle For Peace’, says the fundamentalism “would bury its ugly head soon” and cites the instances of return of Sheikh Hasina regime in Bangaldesh and the matured response to 30 September, 2010 verdict on Ayodhya verdict in India to strengthen the argument.

“Actually, one should not blame the NRIs. Many say, in the west or in a country like Australia under a growing racial structure, fundamentalism like Hindu radicalism or hardline Muslim practices often tend to represent the national pride and identity – howsoever faulty,” it says.

Dev, at present working with daily ‘The Statesman’ in New Delhi bureau and stationed during the verdict days at Ayodhya, says among other things “The manner in which people responded to the September 30 ruling offers enough reasons to keep the secular disposition optimistic that the days of fundamentalism are numbered for the common man has had enough of it and long since rejected the same”.

Dev, who had earlier authored a book on Gujarat riots of 2002 titled, ‘Godhra - A Journey To Mayhem’, analyzes the political fallout of the Ayodhya verdict, and quoting the local residents of Ayodhya and Faizabad, predicts that it could have adverse political fallout for Congress, the ruling party in India.

Quoting Md. Zameer, Naib Imam of Faizabad’s major Tatshah Masjid, the book says, “Muslims are saddened. We firmly believed it (disputed structure) was a Masjid as namaaz used to be performed. Now Congress will have to pay a price for this” ...
