ABSTRACT:

This article attempts to draw a pattern of thought process of the main character of Riot, Mr V Lakshman, the District Magistrate of Zalilgarh where the riot takes place, by analyzing his three poems placed in different sections of the novel and highlight his true personality and psychology.  Also, chronologically speaking, these poems follow a different pattern.  Seen from the linear sequential angle, Advice to Officialdom and Minto Park swap places and the untitled third poem addressed to Priscilla comes last.  Among these, Minto Park presents a picture of Lakhsman’s childhood in Calcutta set in a background of a bygone era of India.  The second poem Advice to Officialdom is the hapless expression of a highly placed official in the midst of riot.  The third untitled poem is the fatal consequence of the first two poems when the riot was in the making waiting to burst out of control.  Lakshman finally realizes that the Pandora’s box he was sitting on, foolishly confident that it will never open, had at last burst open and he was the first victim of the great shock.

 

Key Words:

Riotous situation / bureaucratic quandary / question of religious allegiance / Indian morale / American viewpoint / limitations of illegitimate transcontinental love.
