I Shall Not Hear the Nightingale
I Shall Not Hear the Nightingale
Description
Introduction

I Shall Not Hear the Nightingale, Khushwant Singh's second novel, is set in Amritsar during the height of India's freedom movement, when nationalists called upon the British to 'Quit India'. Sardar Buta Singh, First Class Magistrate, a man whose family is known for its loyalty to the Raj, is close to being nominated to the Queen's honours list that year. However, unknown to him, his son Sher Singh has become the leader of a group of gun-wielding, anti- British revolutionaries. When the headman of a nearby village, a police informer, goes missing, Sher Singh is arrested. If proved guilty of treason he could be sentenced to death. A disgraced Buta Singh disowns his son in order to show his continuing loyalty to the government, and his god-fearing wife Sabhrai turns to the Guru for guidance. The kindly Deputy Commissioner, John Taylor, an Englishman who is sympathetic to Indians and understands the family’s predicament, offers them two alternatives: Sher Singh can either betray his comrades and save his life or else be hanged.

Meanwhile, in Simla, Sher Singh's wife and sister are involved in a parallel drama of their own with Madan, a revolutionary and a rake. A I Shall Not Hear the Nightingale is widely acclaimed as Khushwant Singh's finest novel.

The best and fastest service worldwide - I am in Australia and I put in a big order of books (14 items) on a Wednesday; it was sent on Friday and arrived at my doorstep early on Monday morning - amazing! All very securely packed in a very strong cardboard box. I have bought several times from Exotic India and the service is always exceptionally good. THANK YOU and NAMASTE!

I wanted to let you know how happy we are with our framed pieces of Shree Durga and Shree Kali. Thank you and thank your framers for us. By the way, this month we offered a Puja and Yagna to the Ardhanarishwara murti we purchased from you last November. The Brahmin priest, Shree Vivek Godbol, who was visiting LA preformed the rites. He really loved our murti and thought it very paka. I am so happy to have found your site , it is very paka and trustworthy. Plus such great packing and quick shipping. Thanks for your service Vipin, it is a pleasure.
