Abandoning traditional forms, this narrative surveys the history of modern India through the sensitive eyes of three protagonists - Aziz, Pradip and Jagmohan. Professor Hasan brings to life, in all their complexity, the histories of colonial rule, Independence and Partition. Focusing largely on the years 1857 to 1947, he provides a series of dialogues, interspersed with Urdu couplets, that will engage the reader and give them an independent and eclectic viewpoint on a familiar story.
