A Burning

Aspirations. Three central characters in Megha Majundar’s debut novel titled, A Burning, have aspirations that they hope will be met. Set in contemporary India, the novel presents three points of view which combine to help readers absorb the complexity of their lives. Javin is a Muslim woman who has been imprisoned falsely for a terrorist attack. PT Sir was Javin’s teacher whose state in life has been ascending because of what he has done for a politician. Lovely is an outcast who wants to be a movie star, and she can provide the alibi to release Javin. Majundar pulls readers into issues of justice, fate, corruption and desire while using beautiful prose and exhibiting deep insight into human nature.
