Tales From Birehra is a novel written in linked stories set in a village in India during the '40s. During the Second World War, the movement to gain freedom from the British gains momentum in India. The British get out of the country in a hurry, leaving a trail of blood and devastation behind them. With profoundly vivid storytelling that delves into the symbiotic Hindu-Muslim relationship shared across the Indian sub-continent before the ending of the British Raj, Tales from Birehra is a unique and truly compelling narrative. Birehra is a fictional microcosm of the country and times-a tiny village, shared peacefully by people of different faiths, and shaped by four hundred years of life lived close to the land and guided by the rhythms of the seasons. Could it all be washed away by the looming tide of an evolving political climate, so far removed from their time-honoured yet straightforward existence? Could such a thing even be possible when Birehra's roots run so deep, anchoring it to the land and the heart of a people? With vivid scenery and characters who seem to breathe with colourful life, Rafi Mustafa draws his readers into the culture he describes, making them treasure its simple joys and dread its looming devastation.
