Description

It is 1920 The place is Hoshangabad-a quiet district in the backwoods of central India. Angered by the massacre at Amritsar, some young men hatch a daring conspiracy. In a neighbouring princely state the dissolute ruler intrigues to keep the railways out of his benighted kingdom.

Divergent views about the nature of British rule come to the fore as the ensuing drama is played out against the backdrop of the timeless landscape of India. This novel contains a nuanced appraisal of a critical epoch in Indian history-the British Raj.

REVIEWS
