A Fine Family – Gurcharan Das

1148294A Fine family is an extraordinary chronicle “rich in passion and incident” of several generations of a Punjabi family.

Bauji, a successful lawyer in Lyallpur (now in Pakistan) is forced to flee to India by the violence and instability unleashed by Partition. Bauji has lost everything in the transition, and when his daughter Tara gives birth to a son, Arjun, everyone’s hopes are pinned on the child to revive the family’s fortunes in an independent India.

Together the voices of the various generations tell the story of a fine family and a great country as both struggle to build a new fortune in difficult circumstances.
