Description

But this coincidence of birth has consequences Saleem is not prepared for: telepathic powers that connect him with 1000 other 'midnight's children' - all born in the initial hour of India's independence - and an uncanny sense of smell that allows him tosniff out dangers others cannot perceive. Inextricably linked to his nation, Saleem's biography is a whirlwind of disasters and triumphs that mirrors the course of modern India at its most impossible and glorious.
