1001 Arabian Nights In Telugu

Writing Joseph Anton (2012) seems to have worn out Salman Rushdie. His 600-page memoir about his early childhood in Mumbai, school days at Rugby, Warwickshire in the 1960s, his four marriages and most of all, his life in exile after a fatwa was issued and he was denounced in the Islamic world for his novel, The Satanic Verses (1988), is searingly honest and engaging. However, as he says in an interview with The Guardian, “he got sick of telling the truth.”

Soon after, he returned to fiction and to writing material that was reminiscent of Haroun and the Sea of Stories (1990) and Luka and the Fire of Life (2010), two novels written for his sons Zafar and Milan. The result? His twelfth novel, Two Years Eight Months and Twenty-Eight Nights, hits shelves today.


If you’ve been reading Rushdie since the very beginning, it comes as no surprise that the 300-page novel is a post-modern spin on One Thousand and One Nights, better known as The Arabian Nights. It is not simply a fable but also a meditation on philosophy, religion, fear and above all, love.

The original Nights start with Queen Scheherazade, who tells her husband Shahryâr a story every night, in order to escape being executed by him the following morning. Aware that she might run out of stories, she ingeniously links them from time to time so the ends stay loose and the king can’t kill her because he, like Scheherazade’s readers, must wait to know the fate of the characters.

In Rushdie’s offering, the action begins in 1195 — the philosopher Ibn Rushd (from whom Rushdie’s father took the family name) has been exiled from Cordoba for 1,001 days. He meets Dunia and embarks on an affair with her. Little does he know that Dunia is a djinnia, a mischievous female devil who can inhabit both the real and the fantastic worlds. They share a relationship similar to Shahryâr and Scheherazade but Dunia aims to fill the world with her children, eventually giving birth to half-devils.

Some of Dunia’s descendents now live in present-day USA. They include a man whose feet don’t touch the ground, a girl who can shoot lightning bolts from her fingertips, a child who can cause boils to infect corrupt individuals. As always, there can be no good djinns without bad ones, so there’s a battle between the two forces that rages in, where else, New York city.

If it’s Rushdie, allegory cannot be far behind? In this case, it’s the battle between right and wrong, between different worldviews but it is also about religious and cultural fanaticism and the culture of violence – so much a part of our recent history.

Just like Scheherazade, Rushdie wraps up several threads of his novel in a single section and slices through the time and space continuum with a butter knife. In doing so, he shows us yet again, how he is such a master of his craft, but there is no denying that the pace starts to lag in parts.

Still, Rushdie’s lyrical prose, his deadpan humour and keen sense of ‘action’ see the narrative through to its dizzying climax —the war between earth and Fairyland, between humans and jinni.

1001 arabian nights in telugu dubbed

Nadia Ghulam, Editor: Laura Garcia Jordan

Translated by Melissa Barnetche

The stories of The Arabian Nights fall short next to the stories of the more than 10,000 people that live inside the refugee camps of the island of Lesvos. Every day, many of them go to the offices of non-profit organisations and solidarity groups that work here, such as the Legal Centre Lesvos.

Often, they arrive an hour earlier of the appointed time. Even though it is painful, they retell their long journey through snow covered mountains, through arid deserts, through the dangerous sea, carrying their small children in arms, going through different traumatic situations, crossing militarised borders, only possible with the help of human traffickers. These are real stories, not from The Arabian Nights. Before saying anything, their sorrowful eyes say everything. Theirs are stories of desperation, of terror, of fear and anguish. But above all, they are stories already lived without knowing the ending.

In these stories there’s not just one sultan who wants to kill the women. In these stories, there are sultans from different countries that come to reek terror – sometimes from abroad, sometimes from within their own borders, forcing citizens to escape. They kill and rape with abandon. There are so many people escaping their countries because of these sultans! These are not legends, these are not tales, these are real stories that are happening right now.

The traumas that these people have survived in their journeys to the island, don’t seem to me harsher than what was lived through World War II or during the Nazi era. And this is happening right now. They don’t tell us these stories in order to stay in the island, but with hopes of one day escaping this cancer that seems to have no cure. There are people in solidarity, volunteers and some non profit organisations that do what they can, but who also know that we can’t help them as they deserve. Against the great European powers, they are very small. Small compared to the powers that rule them and make decisions for them. But these individuals and groups are also great, thanks a strong heart that help them continue in these circumstances. We are listening in order to share the voices of those who arrive here, so that Europeans organise themselves outside the institutions which oppress them; and so that those who vote, refrain from voting for those who promote, allow, and sell the weapons that are destroying the lands, houses, and homes of so many people.

They tell us their stories over and over. Interpreters listen and translate, lawyers take notes, and with a look of empathy and solidarity, we accompany them. All have survived psychological and emotional blows, and hope the rest of humanity will listen to them. The hope of living in a better world is met with closed borders, the arms trade, the violent pillage of natural resources, the deployment of soldiers to perpetuate war. If people are continue arriving to Lesvos, it is because they are fleeing violence, and fleeing war.

There are many people that never imagined having to leave their countries by force. They didn’t know other ways of life, other cultures, other foods. Back in their countries they were shopkeepers, mechanics, farmers… Now they need to start all over again from nothing, without speaking the language, sometimes without even knowing how to read and write. How are they going to adapt! If Europe doesn’t want people to come here, then please leave Syria, Afghanistan, Palestine, Congo, Haiti alone! Let them live in peace! This farmer and this woman that don’t read and write even in their own language wanted to stay home, they didn’t want to come here. But war and the sustained violence left them no other option but to throw themselves to the mercy of the sea.

To stop this violence from continuing to grow, it is our duty as a civil society to organise and promote a world without these “sultans”. A world where we listen to each other, where we work to live in peace and love. A world with human sensibility. Where we respect each other and work towards a peaceful world without segregation and hardships. It is not hard to do. We just have to begin and work collectively to build and create this peace that we all desire so much. We just need to act.

Guerra y violencia, lejos de Las mil y una noches

Nadia Ghulam, editado por Laura Garcia

Las historias de Las mil y un noches quedan muy cortas ante las historias de las más de 10.000 personas que viven dentro de los campos de refugiados de la isla de Lesbos. Cada día, muchas de ellas acuden a las oficinas de cooperantes de las organizaciones sin ánimo de lucro que trabajan aquí, y espacios solidarios, como Legal Center Lesbos.

Amenudo, llegan una hora antes de su cita prevista. A pesar del dolorque les provoca, cuentan su dura travesía por el mar y por lasmontañas llenas de nieve o por desiertos sin agua, muchas veces conniños pequeños en brazos pasando por diferentes situaciones detrauma cruzando fronteras militarizadas a manos de los traficantes depersonas.Son cuentos reales no de Lasmil y un noches.Antes de empezar a contar nada, solo con sus miradas tristes ya tedicen todo. Son historias de desesperación, de terror, de miedo yangustia. Y sobretodo, historias vividas sin saber el final.

Enestos cuentos no aparece un sultán que quiera matar sólo a lasmujeres. En este cuento hay sultanes de diferentes países que llegana generar horror – a veces desde afuera, a veces en sus propiasfronteras-que obligan a los ciudadanos a escapar. Matan y violan sin parar.¡Hay tanta, tanta gente que está escapando de su país por culpa deestos sultanes! No son leyendas, no son cuentos, son historias realesque ahora mismo están pasando.

Lostraumas que han vivido estas gentes durante el viaje hasta llegaraquí, no me parecen menos duros que los que se vivieron en laSegunda Guerra Mundial o durante el nazismo. Y ahora, sí, ahora estápasando. Ellos no nos cuentan sus historias para quedarse en estaisla, sino con la esperanza que un día puedan salir de este cáncerque casi no tiene cura. Hay gente solidaria, voluntarios, y algunasorganizaciones sin ánimo de lucro que hacen lo que pueden, perotambién saben que probablemente no los podemos ayudar como ellosrealmente merecen. Ante los grandes poderes europeos, son muypequeños. Pequeños al lado del poder de los que mandan y deciden. Ytambién muy grandes gracias a un corazón muy fuerte que les ayuda aseguir viviendo. Estamos aquí escuchándolos para compartir su voz,para que la ciudadanía de Europa se organice fuera de lasinstituciones que les oprimen, y para que los que votan,no voten a los que promueven, a los que permiten, a los que estánvendiendo las armas que están destruyendo las tierras, las casas,los hogares de tanta gente.

Ellosnos cuentan una y otra vez sus historias. Los traductores escuchamosy traducimos, los abogados toman nota y con una mirada de solidaridadlos acompañan en este proceso. Todos sobreviven con golpespsicológicos y emocionales con la esperanza de ser escuchados por elresto de la humanidad. Con la esperanza de vivir esa promesa de unmundo mejor, que luego se convierte en una frontera cerrada, en laventa de armas, el saqueo violento de recursos naturales, y el envíode soldados para seguir con la guerra. Si están aquí es porquehuyen de la violencia, de la guerra.

Haymucha gente que nunca había pensado que tendrían que dejar su paíspara irse, por la fuerza, a otro lugar. No conocían otras formas devivir, otras culturas, otras comidas. Algunas, en su país erantenderos, mecánicos, campesinos… Ahora les toca empezar de nuevosin conocer el idioma, a veces sin saber leer ni escribir. Como sevan a adaptar! Si Europa no desea que la gente venga para aquí, porfavor dejen en paz a Siria, Afganistán, Palestina, Congo, y Haití…¡Dejen que vivan en paz! Este campesino y esta mujer que no sabe niescribir su propia idioma querían quedarse en su casa, no queríanvenir. Pero la guerra y la violencia continuada no les dejó ningúnotra opción que lanzarse al mar.

Paraque esta violencia no siga creciendo más y más, nos corresponde ala sociedad civil organizarnos, promoverun mundo sin estos ‘sultanes’. Un mundo donde nos escuchemos,donde trabajemospara que podamos vivir en paz y con amor. Un mundo que tengasensibilidad humana. Donde nos respetemosy trabajemospara construir un mundo pacífico sin tantas separaciones ydificultades. No es difícil hacerlo. Solo nos tenemos que ponermanos a la obra y trabajar conjuntamente para construir y cultivaresta paz que tanto deseamos. Solo tenemos que pasar a la acción.
