Description

About the Book :

Born at the stroke of midnight at the exact moment of India's independence, Saleem Sinai is a special child. However, this coincidence of birth has consequences he is not prepared for: telepathic powers connect him with 1,000 other 'midnight's children' all of whom are endowed with unusual gifts. Inextricably linked to his nation, Saleem's story is a whirlwind of disasters and triumphs that mirrors the course of modern India at its most impossible and glorious.

Salman Rushdie is a master in writing. The book is about the Midnight's Children i.e children born in the first hour after India got freedom. It says the political course of modern India and the in-fighting of its various social and religious factions. Some knowledge of the history of India & Pakistan before and after independence and the partition will be helpful. Its an incredible fiction that tells the true story of India's birth as a nation. Rusdie's writing is poetic yet powerful. This book is undoubtedly good.
