“Midnight’s Children” is another standout work from Salman Rushdie, that although isn’t nearly of the infamy or fame (delete where applicable) as “The Satanic Verses”, is very much just as superb.

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.
