Summary
February 1942: India is in turmoil with the Japanese poised to invade, and Gandhi rallying his followers in the struggle to end British rule. A young London-educated Indian, Hari Kumar, suspected of being a subversive by the local British police superintendent Ronald Merrick, strikes up a romance with a shy young English girl, Daphne Manners. But their star-crossed affair leads to Merrick's persistent hatred for Kumar, and so the story begins. It is the story of the men and women of both ruling and ruled classes, trying amidst the turmoil to come to terms with the drastic changes taking place aroundthem, knowing that their lives will never be the same again
