This Sahitya akademi Award-winning novel is one of the best Indo-Anglian novels ever written.
Highly acclaimed by both press and writers, it portrays the meeting of East and West on the most intimate plane through the story of Rama , an Indian, and Madeleine, a French girl, who meet at a French university shortly after World War II.
Their union is the central theme of the book and it is in telling this story that Rama reveals, much more deeply than most writers are able to suggest in their lifetime, the meaning of love.
