Aag Ka Darya / آگ کا دریا by Qurratulain HyderThe most important novel of twentieth-century Urdu fiction.
First published in 1959, Aag ka Darya encompasses the fates of four recurring characters over two and a half millennia: Gautam, Champa, Kamal, and Cyril—Buddhist, Hindu, Muslim, and Christian. In different eras different relations form and reform among the four: romance and war, possession and dispossession. Interweaving parables, legends, dreams, diaries, and letters, Hyders prose is lyrical and witty. And she argues for a culture that is inclusive: Aag ka Darya is a book that questions the relevance of religion in defining Indian identity.
