Peters, GlenMrs. D´Silva´s Detective Instincts & The Shaitan of Calcutta

BOOK REVIEW: Mrs. D´Silva´s Detective Instincts & The Shaitan Of Calcutta A super enjoyable read. Filled with nostalgia for those Anglo-Indian’s who loved to travel on trains, manually drawn rickshaws, and over-burdened trams. Reminiscent of “old Calcutta”. The author, Glen Peters is an Anglo-Indian, born in Allahabad and immigrated to the United Kingdom in the 1960’s. He spent his childhood in a Railway colony close to Calcutta. His recollections of the places, sights, sounds and smells bring the City to life in the telling of this story.

Joan D´Silva is a young widow, she has a 10 year-old son Errol, and is the main provider for her small family. Joan lives in Calcutta, and teaches at Don Bosco´s Catholic school. The story begins with an enjoyable picnic at the shrine of Our Lady by the Hooghly near Bandle. Many of us will happily recall our Anglo-Indian picnics – rowdy, social, the singalongs, and of course the delicious food. This is the background for the horrific find made by Errol. It is the body of a young woman lying by the river bank.

The victim is identified as Agnes Lal a former pupil at Don Bosco´s. She was married to Xavier Lal, a much older very unpleasant individual. The marriage had been arranged by the Nuns at Don Bosco’s, who were ignorant to the fact that Lal was homosexual. Agnes’s 2 devoted and concerned friends Philomena Thomas and Anil Sen ask Joan to help find out what happened to their friend. In the interim however, Thomas James, GKW´s factory manager is murdered during a riot and the police arrest Anil Sen and extract a signed confession from him to the crime. Joan and Philip, her close friend get involved in the investigation, while Dutta, (the culprit behind the name “shaitan”,) encourages his followers to create havoc in Calcutta. Dutta is the self-proclaimed leader of the Workers´ Revolutionary Movement.

Glen Peters spins an artful tale. Enjoyment on every page, as you read about the social gatherings, the many delectable foods, the servants interchanging pleasantries with their employers. Close your eyes and your are “there”. Do not be fooled, however, because below the surface the “real Calcutta” breaks through. Overpowering with murder, thievery, prostitution, police brutality and the unending, horrendous poverty all assail the senses. The great divide of the Indian class system becomes too great for the reader to comprehend at times.

Memorable individuals portraying their intelligence, and weaknesses. I loved the “believableness” in the characters. And, if you have forgotten your Anglo-Indian words, there is a glossary at the back.

There are some terrific recipes on the front and back covers of the book. I must admit I tried the mouth-watering Lucknow Biryani. Mrs. D’Silva is certainly a memorable character and I personally hope that Glen Peters will continue with her in books to come. This is an India I recall from my childhood and it was wonderful to return there.
