Mistaken Identity
Description
About the Book

The year' is 1929, India is torn by strikes, and the Britis Raj is close to panic: Bhushan Singh, the purposeless son of a minor raja is charged with treason and thrown into jail. As the months awaiting trial stretch into years, the apolitical Bhushan entertains his Communist cellmates with tail's or his world: or his veiled mother; of his very modern Parsec girlfriend; of the American flapper who taught him the Turkey Trot; of his forbidden boyhood affair which ignited two murderous Hindu-Muslim riots and led to his banishment abroad.

A complex work, Mistaken Identity is at once a family saga, a romance, a historical novel rich with India's cultural history; and, perhaps most keenly, a fable concerning the implacable workings of karma

Ina, Germany
The books arrived today and I have to congratulate you on such a WONDERFUL packing job! I have never, ever, received such beautifully and carefully packed items from India in all my years of ordering. Each and every book arrived in perfect shape--thanks to the extreme care you all took in double-boxing them and using very strong boxes. (Oh how I wished that other businesses in India would learn to do the same! You won't believe what some items have looked like when they've arrived!) Again, thank you very much. And rest assured that I will soon order more books. And I will also let everyone that I know, at every opportunity, how great your business and service has been for me. Truly very appreciated, Namaste.
