Set in the months leading up to and following India obtaining freedom in 1947, The Partition Trilogy is an exploration of the events, exigencies and decisions that led to the independence of India, its concomitant partition, and the accession of Princely States alongside. A literary political thriller that captures the frenzy of the time, the series is set in Delhi, Lahore, Hyderabad, and Kashmir. Covering a vast canvas, Jawaharlal Nehru, Vallabhbhai Patel, and Dickie Mountbatten share space in the trilogy with the ordinary people from the cities that were affected by the partition and the reorganization of the states.
Backed by astute research that ensures the authenticity of the political thread, this trilogy will take readers back into a world of great political upheaval and churn. In its fresh, incisive, and insightful portrayal of a cataclysm that haunts us to this day, The Partition Trilogy is both spellbinding and believable - a remarkable feat.
