About The Book Saleem Sinai is born at the stroke of midnight on August 15, 1947- the precise minute India's freedom is inaugurated. Welcomed by a display of cheekily crafted firecrackers, cheering swarms and Prime Minister Nehru himself, Saleem grows up to take in the inauspicious results of this fortuitous event. Each of his enactments are reflected and amplified in occasions that influence the course of national affairs. His health and prosperity are inseparably bound to those of his country and his life is as one - on occasion, vague - from the history of his nation. Maybe most striking are the clairvoyant forces connecting him with India's 1,000 other "midnight's children," all conceived in that introductory hour and enriched with supernatural endowments. Midnight's Children by Salman Rushdie deals with India's move from British pioneerism to freedom and the partition With elements of magic realism and postcolonial literature, the story is narrated by the main protagonist, Saleem Sinai and lies somewhere in the realm of chronicled events mixed with historical fiction. This novel is an entrancing family adventure and a shocking summoning of an immense land and its people -a splendid incarnation of the widespread human drama. Twenty-five years after its production, Midnight's Children stands separated as both an epochal work of fiction and a splendid execution by one of the artistic voices of our time. Published on 3rd January, 2013, it is available in paperback. Key Features In 1981, it won both the Booker Prize and the James Tait Black Memorial Prize. It was included in the Penguin Book's list of "Great Books of the 20th Century". The novel was adapted by the Royal Shakespeare Company for the stage format in 2003.
