The Shadow Lines

This Sahitya Akademi award-winning novel by Amitav Ghosh is set in Kolkata and follows two families - one English and one Bengali - and their lives set against the Swadeshi movement, the Second World War, the partition of India and the communal riots of 1963-64 in Dhaka and Kolkata. It's a perfect observation of how political events affect private lives.
