A Burning by Megha Majumdar: Of hyper-nationalism, power dynamics and scapegoating.
A Burning, as the name itself, burns with a fire so strong, one continues to feel its warmth long after it’s been doused.
Prelude To A Riot by Annie Zaidi: The novel captures the beginning of the end of a divided India.
Mass polarization and hear-say instead of careful deliberation is the tone of today’s India. Mirroring the dysfunctional, unreliable & highly fractured world, Prelude To A Riot takes us through the lens of the past, the series of events that followed it, ultimately leading to our downfall.
