It’s midnight August 15, 1947. Saleem Sinai is the illegitimate son of a poor woman, and Shiva the offspring of a wealthy couple. From the unlikely romance of Saleem’s grandparents to the birth of his own son, Midnight’s Children is a journey at once sweeping in scope and yet intimate in tone. Hopeful, comic and magical – the film conjures images and characters as rich and unforgettable as India herself.

On the verge of finishing #MidnightsChildren. Grandulous approach to write one's story relating it to his native country's fate. Good read.
