The Ministry of Utmost Happiness By Arundhati Roy

A richly moving new novel-the first since the author's Booker-Prize winning, internationally celebrated debut, The God of Small Things, went on to become a beloved best seller and enduring classic.

The Ministry of Utmost Happiness transports us across a subcontinent on a journey of many years. It takes us deep into the lives of its gloriously rendered characters, each of them in search of a place of safety- in search of meaning, and of love.

In a graveyard outside the walls of Old Delhi, a resident unrolls a threadbare Persian carpet. On a concrete sidewalk, a baby suddenly appears, just after midnight. In a snowy valley, a bereaved father writes a letter to his five-year-old daughter about the peoplewho came to her funeral. In a second-floor apartment, a lone woman chain-smokes as she reads through her old notebooks. At the Jannat Guest House, two people who have known each other all their lives sleep with their arms wrapped around each other, as though they have just met.

A braided narrative of astonishing force and originality, The Ministry of Utmost Happiness is at once a love story and a provocation-a novel as inventive as it is emotionally engaging. It is told with a whisper, in a shout, through joyous tears and sometimes with a bitter laugh. Its heroes, both present and departed, have been broken by the world we live in-and then mended by love. For this reason, they will never surrender.

How to tell a shattered story?
By slowly becoming everybody.
No. 
By slowly becoming everything.

Humane and sensuous, beautifully told, this extraordinary novel demonstrates on every page the miracle of Arundhati Roy's storytelling gifts.

Indigo Plantation in Bengal By Amalendu De

Much like oil today, indigo was once one of the most powerful commodities on earth. De’s study shows how the science-based and expert driven indigo culture of the colonial force shaped its affairs in the undivided Bengal, influenced its economic policies and drove the international trade. Divided into seven chapters with an appendix, De begins with the early history of the indigo cultivation in India, explores its successive stages and discusses the cost of human factors that led to the rebellion. Richly detailed, impeccably researched and thoroughly compelling, this is an engrossing and provocative history of indigo plantation in Bengal.
