The Sound of Water

(2009)
A novel by

 
 
Written with rare literary style by a former director of the Indian Ministry of Coal, The Sound of Water provides an agonizing 360-degree account of an Indian mining disaster as seen from three perspectives: an old miner struggling to save himself and his coworkers hundreds of feet below the surface of the earth as water threatens to drown them; the company and government officials charged with managing the rescue efforts; and the miners' families anxiously awaiting word of survival or death.

The Sound of Water is a searing fictional exposé of the appalling conditions that Indian miners endure and a moving story of the spiritual strength and conviction that enables one to survive against the odds. Despite the despair, futility, and negatives, The Sound of Water is a story about those who find their own redemption in an impossible situation and liberation from elements that throttle life.
