The Quarantine Papers (English) (Hardcover) Price: Rs.460

As the Babri Masjid is razed in Ayodhya, brick by ancient brick, Ratan Oak stumbles upon a corpse at the Kipling House in Bombay. It is the beginning of an unraveling for him, of the submerged identity he has sought to suppress all his life: that of his great-grandfather, Ramratan Oak.

Grappling with this tandem existence, Ratan realizes that the communal violence which consumes his city mirrors the turbulence it experienced in Ramratan's times. For, concealed in the scientific discoveries of the plague epidemic of 1897 is the terrifying truth about the dead woman of Kipling House. A novel that perfectly balances character and pace, The Quarantine Papers dissects the compulsions of a hate that corrupts, as it trails a doomed love story from nineteenth century Bombay into our own day.

About The Author
Kalpish Ratna, which translates as ?the pleasures of imagination? is the pen name of Ishrat Syed and Kalpana Swaminathan. Their last book, Uncertain Life and Sure Death, is an itinerant history that examines 500 years of epidemic disease in the islands we call Bombay.
