In 2001, a calamitous earthquake struck Gujarat. A year later came the kind of communal carnage the nation had not seen since the Partition. For Robin David, then an assistant editor with the Times of India, the two events engendered a tectonic shift in his own life. The earthquake left deep cracks in his ancestral home, while the riots undermined all the certainties of life, making it impossible to walk through hit her to familiar neighbourhoods. A decade later, the wounds have not healed. At a time when the memory of the riots has already faded in the minds of many, City of Fear documents the varied forms of fear that people in Gujarat experienced during that period, especially those of the authors own Indian Jewish Bene Israeli family. About the Author Robin David is a journalist working as deputy resident editor with The Times of Indias Ahmedabad edition. He has extensively covered the Gujarat earthquake of 2001 and the Godhra riots of 2002, events which form the core of this book.
