Corruption, community and duty in Family Matters
in Rohinton Mistry

This chapter examines the ‘Pandora's Box’ of corruption and religious majoritarianism that serves as the background to Mistry's Family Matters, a novel which takes place against the backdrop of communalist politics and corruption. It stresses that while Family Matters does not have the power and scope of A Fine Balance, it is still able to continue the study of the interconnected spaces of a multitudinous nation, as well as the intersubjective processes of storytelling which can be found at the centre of Mistry's oeuvre.
