Bhowani Junction Story Tellers Story Tellers Story Tellers review ↠ eBook or Kindle ePUB First published in 1954 in the wake of the partition of India John Masters' great novel Bhowani Junction has increased in stature over the years Standing between EM Forster's A Passage to India and the acclaimed works of later writers such as Paul Scott and Salman Rushdie Bhowani Junction is both a richly intriguing novel and a superb evocation of the tensions and conflicts at the birth of modern IndiaIt is one of John Masters' seven novels which followed several generations of the Savage family serving in the British Army in IndiaBhowani Junction i. Another well crafted novel from John Masters about the end of the British Raj and one woman who is torn between three identities Anglo Indian Indian or English The story is told from the perspectives of three different narrators Victoria Jones Anglo Indian Army officer on terminal leave Patrick Taylor Anglo Indian Railway Traffic Officer and Col Rodney Savage 13th Gurkha Rifles While the story is primarily about Jones battle to define herself the parallel plot concerns internal security operations conducted by Savage and the search for an Indian Communist provocateur KP Roy Masters was fascinated with trains and the Delhi Deccan Railway and the Anglo Indian culture that surrounded it is also central to the plot and storyMasters indirectly sheds light on the major theme of identity in this novel later in his 1971 memoir Pilgrim Son where he describes his feelings on having to uit India in 1947 with some torment After Independence he saw no place for himself in India where his family had been since the 18th century or England and eventually he settled in America This struggle is echoed by each of the primary charactersAgain Masters is a bit paternalistic and dismissive of the Indian passion for independence He seems to grudgingly accept Anglo Indians this may not be fair and I would like to see someone else s perspective on this and saves his deepest respect for the Gurkhas Sikhs and the Indians who allied themselves with the British Very well written and exciting to the end
