'Joyce dissolved mechanism in literature as successfully as Einstein destroyed it in physics,' wrote Alfred Kazin.

Example text

But, by a chance concatenation of factors that gave Bengal’s Hindu leaders the opening they needed, the Congress high command opted for the partition of India for quite different reasons of their own. The leaders of the all-India Congress were convinced that, in order to hold the country together after the British departed, independent India must have a strong centre. In their view, post-war India was staring into the abyss of a disastrous social and political breakdown. To avoid catastrophe, the Congress high command wanted a swift transfer of power to a strong central government, firmly under its control.

On this critical question, the alliance which had pressed for partition proved to have different and sometimes diametrically opposed opinions. The ‘maximalist’ view was that the state should be as large as could possibly be contrived. At the other end of the spectrum, the ‘minimalists’ argued that the new state should be as small and as compact as possible. Disagreements tended to follow the fault lines of party politics. The smaller parties made the largest claims. The Hindu Mahasabha and the New Bengal Association wanted the Coordination Committee to demand as much territory as it could, blatantly stretching the terms of the ‘other factors’ clause to bolster their claims.

35. 1 Distribution of Muslims in undivided Bengal, by district, 1931 (Census of India, 1931, vol. V, part I). The devil in the detail 29 bhadralok had, after all, called for Bengal to be partitioned because they saw no future for themselves in a Muslim-majority province. In demanding a state of their own, they had made the historic choice of rejecting the political strategy of working in partnership with Muslim majorities. If tracts of land in which Muslims were in a large majority were retained in West Bengal, the very logic of that choice would have been fatally compromised.
