Editorial Reviews


"Sabarmati captures the feel, smells and tastes of urban India in the crucible that fuses history, tradition and neo-liberal globalization."
TIM McCASKELL, author of Race To Equity: Disrupting Educational Inequality

"[A] riveting account of how human souls can reach lowly depths of inhumanity...In the depths of darkness, it also shines a light on the compassion and resilience of many-- Hindus, Muslims, Dalits and others who worked to rebuild, restore peace and bring comfort to the suffering and the scarred."
IDRISA PANDIT, Religious Studies scholar, University of Waterloo

"[T]he book unfolds with compelling and daring self-reflection, unpacking his experiences in the aftermath of a recent grisly history that is both important and largely unknown outside the author's native India...a stunning portrayal of a particular period of time of street-level fascism in India."
DAVID BOEHNKE in The Industrial Worker

"A powerful and compelling personal narrative...The story is told with remarkable candour, honesty and humour, and asks important questions that are salient for anyone who has considered the nature of aid work, community violence and of humanity itself."
SWATHI SEKHAR, Member, Immigration Legal Committee and Prisoner Correspondence Project, Toronto

"[A] gripping journey that exposes India's communal violence, and enables us to understand the roots of the hatred that breeds such grotesque episodes of carnage. Courageously honest and daringly self-reflective, perhaps the greatest contribution of Across the Sabarmati is the unforgiving mirror it holds up to its readers, encouraging us to come to terms with our own privilege and compelling us to act."
YOGI ACHARYA, Community Organizer, No One Is Illegal - Toronto

About the Author

Sriram Ananth is an activist and writer who leads a somewhat scatterbrained but politically-enriching transnational life between Canada, the US and India. Across the Sabarmati is his first book and he fully expects it to be denounced by religious fascists in India.
