The tensions and conflicts that accompanied the birth of modern India are grippingly evoked in John Masters' classic 'Bhowani Junction'. Set in the late 1940s and first published in 1954 in the wake of Partition, the novel has increased in stature over the years. 'Bhowani Junction', along with Masters' other Indian novels, now takes its place alongside E.M. Forster's 'A Passage to India' and the acclaimed works of such later writers as Paul Scott and Salman Rushdie.
