Salman Rushdie,his novels,masterly expositions of the techniqueof magic realism,weave the personal and polotical,reality and phantasmagoria to an inextricable end. In Midnight's Children the fates of India and protagonist salim Sinai.the alter ego of the auther,are so interwined from the moment of their births that they seem to be heading to a common-end death. In Moor's Last Sigh,he lampooned Bal Thackeray.
Review of life :
Rushdie has not endeared himself to the right -wing in Mumbai,the city of his birth.
