Shantaram by Gregory David Roberts Summary

Bombay, années 70. "Il m’a fallu du temps et presque le tour du monde pour apprendre ce que je sais de l’amour et du destin, et des choix que nous faisons, mais le cœur de tout cela m’a été révélé en un instant, alors que j’étais enchaîné à un mur et torturé." Tels sont les premiers mots de Lin, le narrateur, homme en cavale qui, un faux passeport en poche, s’est évadé d’une prison australienne de haute sécurité pour atterrir dans les rues fourmillantes de la capitale économique indienne où il espère disparaître. En compagnie de son guide et fidèle ami, Prabaker, il pénètre le monde secret de la «ville dorée», où se côtoient prostituées et religieux, soldats et acteurs, mendiants et gangsters. Fugitif sans foyer, famille, ou identité, Lin cherche inlassablement à donner un sens à sa vie, d’abord en improvisant une clinique dans un bidonville, puis à l’échec de celle-ci en faisant ses premières armes dans la mafia de Bombay. Cette quête le conduira jusqu’à la guerre, à la prison et ses tortures, au meurtre, et à une série de trahisons sanglantes. Puis à la rédemption, enfin. Les clés du mystère et des intrigues qui entravent Lin se trouvent entre les mains de deux personnes : son mentor, Khader Khan, parrain de la mafia, à la fois criminel, saint et philosophe, mais aussi et surtout Karla, femme mystérieuse, belle et dangereuse dont Lin tombe follement amoureux. De l’incendie du bidonville aux hôtels cinq étoiles, de la guerre des gangs aux films de Bollywood, des gourous spirituels aux guérillas des moudjahiddin, ce roman épique et foisonnant nous plonge dans une Inde fascinante et marque l’entrée en littérature d’une voix extraordinaire.

Shantaram by Gregory David Roberts Summary

'A literary masterpiece . . . at once erudite and intimate, reflective and funny . . . it has the grit and pace of a thriller' Daily Telegraph A novel of high adventure, great storytelling and moral purpose, based on an extraordinary true story of eight years in the Bombay underworld. 'In the early 80s, Gregory David Roberts, an armed robber and heroin addict, escaped from an Australian prison to India, where he lived in a Bombay slum. There, he established a free health clinic and also joined the mafia, working as a money launderer, forger and street soldier. He found time to learn Hindi and Marathi, fall in love, and spend time being worked over in an Indian jail. Then, in case anyone thought he was slacking, he acted in Bollywood and fought with the Mujahedeen in Afghanistan . . . Amazingly, Roberts wrote Shantaram three times after prison guards trashed the first two versions. It's a profound tribute to his willpower . . . At once a high-kicking, eye-gouging adventure, a love saga and a savage yet tenderly lyrical fugitive vision.' Time Out

V. Shantaram by Madhura Pandit Jasraj Summary

He immortalized movies on celluloid… An authentic, heartfelt, insightful and comprehensive account of one of India’s most respected and eminent filmmakers, who was an institution in himself… V. Shantaram (1901–90) stands out as a colossus in Indian cinema. As one of the pioneers in this field, he honed his skills not only as a producer and director but also as an actor, writer, cameraman, technician and editor. He effectively used the medium of cinema as a vehicle for creating awareness about numerous social problems (such as communalism, dowry and the cycle of debt and poverty) and tried to bring about a change in society. This riveting biography – penned by his daughter – brings alive the life and times of Shantaram and his contemporaries, while simultaneously throwing light on a bygone era of Indian cinema marked by struggles, uncertainties and difficulties but yet infused with hope, perseverance and determination. Among Shantaram’s prominent creations in Hindi are Ayodhya Ka Raja (1932), Sairandhari (1933; India’s first colour film), Amrit Manthan (1934), Duniya Na Maane (1937), Aadmi (1939), Padosi (1941), Dr Kotnis Ki Amar Kahani (1946), Dahej (1950), Janak Janak Pyal Baaje (1955), Do Aankhen Barah Haath (1957), Navrang (1959), Sehra (1963), Geet Gaya Pattharon Ne (1964) and Pinjra (1972)

Shantaram by Gregory Roberts Summary

Shantaram är Gregory David Roberts egen berättelse från de händelserika och omtumlande åren som förrymd fånge i Bombays undre värld. I ett av stadens slumområden öppnar han en sjukvårdsmottagning för de fattiga och nödställda. Han arbetar för maffian som pengatvättare och förfalskare och följer med maffialedaren Abdel Khader Khan till Afghanistan för att förse mujaheddin med vapen i kampen mot ryssarna. Hans kastas i indiskt fängelse och får utstå tortyr och svält. I den grönögda och mystiska Karla möter han kärleken. Shantaram är ett niohundra sidor långt läsäventyr och en varm och innerlig kärleksförklaring till staden Bombay och dess människor. Det är en hård och rå värld Roberts beskriver, men det är en värld där kärleken, lojaliteten och vänskapen alltid står i centrum.
