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.

Slightly slogging my way through #midnightschildren. It’s not bad, not at all, it’s just not a light read!
