Description

Rajkumar is only another boy, helping on a market stall in the dusty square outside the royal palace, when the British force the Burmese King, Queen and all the Court into exile. He is rescued by a far-seeing Chinese merchant and with him builds up a logging business in upper Burma. But haunted by his vision of the Royal Family, Rajkumar journeys to the obscure town in India where they have been exiled.
The picture of the tension between the Burmese, the Indian and the British is excellent. Among the great range of characters are one of the court ladies, Miss Dolly, whom Rajkumar marries: and the redoubtable Jonakin, part of the British-educated Indian colony, who, with her husband, has been put in charge of the Burmese exiled court.
The story follows the fortunes – rubber estates in Malaya, businesses in Singapore, estates in Burma – which Rajkumar, with his Chinese, British and Burmese relations, friends and associates, builds up – from 1870 through the Second World War to the scattering of the extended family to New York and Thailand, London and Hong Kong in the post-war years.

  1. SUMAN DAS (Verified Purchase)

    I generally don’t go beyond star reviews but this one is outstanding! A beautiful entanglement of people in different walks of life through almost three generations!

  2. Anis Shaikh (Verified Purchase)

    A classic. Rare insight into history wonderfully twined with fiction, Takes you literally to Burma and u live with it till the story ends.

  3. Gullu Mehak (Verified Purchase)

    Thoroughly enjoyed the book. Wish it went on and on. Takes you to distant lands – Burma, Malay and India. Like most of his books, weaves a story with history in the backdrop. I Google the characters to get to know most of them existed!!

  4. Sourav Mondal (Verified Purchase)

    Nice deal for Rs 209. The book came well packed and in good condition. Coming to novel Loved reading this novel. It is such a beautiful collage of emotions and drama that it won’t fail to mesmerize you. It’s surely one novel of a lifetime.

  5. Depika Gurung (Verified Purchase)

    Beautiful writing. Though a bit convulsive, the story is so soothing to read. Amitav has done a wonderful job in presenting the time lost in our history about our neighbour nation and our engagement with it. The story keeps moving forward which keeps the reader interested in knowing more…
