Overview of On The Loom Of Time

On the loom of time portrays the life and times of shiva kant jha who has acted and thought in many worlds. it resembles, in its structure, the holy vilvapatra that is offered to lord shiva: it is a triplet of ’the fragrant years’, ’a cog in the machine’ and ’illusion & reality’.  ’the fragrant years’ recaptures the fragrance of the years in which, as a bud on the twig of a family with a recorded family-tree of about 700 years, he  grew up in a family of freedom-fighters, and was shaped and conditioned by  the rich  cultural ethos of mithila.               ’a cog in the machine’   reflects on his   more than three decades of life   when he was a cog in the machine, we call ’government’:  the years when he played his role, as a member of the indian revenue service, dealing with the raw realities of our public administration. this book gives a critical account of   the circumstances that led to the constitution of the aiyer commission, the imposition of the infamous emergency, the j.p. movement, and the fodder scam, and many other events which should never be forgotten. ’illusion & reality’ explores the illusion and reality of the world we live in.  this book would tell you about the poetry expressed through the imageries at the supreme court, about what makes krishna, buddha, jesus, mohammad, marx and gandhi the most creative and enlightening figures in human history shaping our worldview;   about the sacrilege of debasing and defiling our constitution; about the state of our ’democracy’, and our republic, about the loot of our nation, and about  the realm of darkness wherefrom vampires swoop down on us to suck our blood. it would tell you about the dominant worldview, the crisis of civilizations, ’democratic deficit’ and ’moral deficit’ which shri jha noticed, with pangs. “illusion & reality” would show how our most cherished illusions have got dashed to pieces on colliding with reality.  he has touched in his memoir many shores, and has passed through many worlds inviting you to share his perspective, and to see things from his observation-post.
