I just finished reading this book from "Rohinton Mistry" called Fine Balance.
Very few books have touched me so much as this book. This book is a story about four individuals, bought together by fate, trying to wriggle out of the endless circle of poverty, uncertainty of life, during the time of Emergency (1975)
After RK Narayan, and out of my limited reading habit, this is the best of fiction that I have read till now.
More than that I learnt so many things about Indian history and about the time of emergency that I never read in history books.
Highly recommended read.
