Howard Fast is a famous American writer. He was one of the few enlightened Americans to have seen, touched, tasted, and loved his country so closely. He doesn’t see many dollars as America’s wealth. He doesn’t consider the atomic bomb to be America’s strength, and he doesn’t view the glitz and glamor of Broadway and Hollywood as the American ethos. He believes that the source of this wealth, morality, and power is the people, and the people do not live in a few skyscrapers of New York. Rather, they live in hundreds of millions of tiny one-story houses in the valleys of America, live in camps made of unhewn logs, and work day and night like other human beings. They love their neighbors and dress up as Santa Claus to bring gifts to their children on Christmas Day.
Howard describes the wonderful, gracious, refined Americans who love each other and fight against oppression. Sometimes they win, and sometimes they lose, but they continue their fight even if they lose. Howard Fast is not the author of the gilded veneer presented to us over American life. He peels off this veneer and presents real American life to us so that the American characters appear to us as the characters of India and Pakistan.
In “Azadi Ke Baad Novel,” you will find such a beautiful picture of the poor American people. Among them are whites, blacks, educated, and illiterate individuals. Capitalists and feudal lords seduce some people, while others fight till death for a better world. Howard takes us through a golden but very painful period in American history right after the Civil War. When the Negroes were freed in South America, and the lands of white landlords were auctioned. How the enslaved Negroes created a new community alongside the poor whites at that time. How were the Wells, Inns, and Schools built? The time when Jeff made love to blind eyes in order to bring light into them, and the toil of Gooden’s black hands blossomed in the form of white cotton flowers. Then, how some selfish individuals seduced by capitalists and feudal lords set out to destroy this beautiful world.
Through its dynamic characters, the novel presents the dramatic background of all these events. So interesting and filled with human sympathy that despite the intensity of hatred for the oppressors, the strong feeling that emerges in a person’s heart after reading the novel is the knowledge and experience of man, his gentleness, kindness, greatness, and victory over cruelty and a feeling of achievement.
