In this volume which looks at how Indian dreams and how others dream about India, two poems on India by writer Cécile Oumhani provide the passage to the dream world. The featured article by Psychoanalyst Pascale Hassoun underscores the process through which the psychoanalytic cure endows dreams with regenerative potential. The first chapter analyzes the mise en abyme of dreams in Manil Suri's Death of Visnu. The second chapter throws a special light on the dreamlike world of the Sundarbans chapter of Salman Rushdie's Midnight's Children. The third revisits Sri Aurobindo's dreams for the nation and the world, his epic Savitri and the dream city of Auroville. The fourth chapter highlights the notion of migritude in the work of the Kenyan artist and writer Shailja Patel. The clash and coalescence of Indian and American dreams in Chitra Banerjee Divakaruni's Queen of Dreams is the focus of the fifth chapter. The sixth chapter is an original reading of the displacement of dreams in Hari Kunzru's Transmission in the light of anthropological theories. The focus shifts to the poetics of the dream in Hindi popular cinema and Raj Kapoor in the seventh chapter. The nexus of dreams, films and marriages is studied in the penultimate eighth chapter. The final chapter plunges us into the geopolitics of the Indian Ocean to figure out whether it is a dream or reality.
