SHORTLISTED FOR THE MAN BOOKER PRIZE 2013 SHORTLISTED FOR THE BAILEYS WOMEN'S PRIZE FOR FICTION 2014SHORTLISTED FOR THE NATIONAL BOOK AWARD 2013From Subhash's earliest memories, at every point, his brother was there. In the suburban streets of Calcutta where they wandered before dusk and in the hyacinth-strewn ponds where they played for hours on end, Udayan was always in his older brother's sight. So close in age, they were inseparable in childhood and yet, as the years pass †“ as U.S tanks roll into Vietnam and riots sweep across India †“ their brotherly bond can do nothing to forestall the tragedy that will upend their lives. Udayan †“ charismatic and impulsive †“ finds himself drawn to the Naxalite movement, a rebellion waged to eradicate inequity and poverty. He will give everything, risk all, for what he believes, and in doing so will transform the futures of those dearest to him.

    🔮Hidden Depths


    Muhammad IIhas quoted6 years ago
    ‘Jhumpa Lahiri is a master of dramatic turns, but not in the conventional sense. She lets tension build slowly until something snaps.

    Once, within this enclave, there were two ponds, oblong, side by side. Behind them was a lowland spanning a few acres.
    Aureliahas quoted6 years ago
    Without him she was reminded of herself again. A person most at ease with her books, spending afternoons filling her notebooks in the cool high-ceilinged reading room of Presidency’s library
