I have complete respect for Mr. Rushdie, I personally like him a lot. 2011, I bought Midnight’s Children from Connaught Place, New Delhi and I read it and really I do not like it. I also watched the film version Directed by Deepa Mehta and still I do not like it. The way Mr. Rushdie interpreted the history relating within the story is entirely vague. I noticed less important issues are more highlighted than the original fact. The dream fantasy and how a new age Indian Dream Children took birth is totally an absurd idea. Its a pathetic experience to read such a lengthy boring novel, don’t know how The Man Booker team came up with the Best of The Booker decision to this novel. I am not saying they do not introduced us with great books and authors. May be they didn’t verify the ultimate background or the indirect context make them nervous. It makes me think that the Man Booker Team is more concerned about fictional aristocracy than real love about fiction.
