Historical

In The Top of the Raintree, Kamalini Sengupta deftly explores Calcutta in its heyday. Intricate personal, social, political and religious ironies are reflected through the surreal, the mundane and the real. The Rajmahal, a magnificent turn-of-the-century Calcutta mansion on Chowringhee, is imbued with a life of its own, its spaces inhabited by pigeons, ghosts and a diversity of tenants. About Author : Kamalini Sengupta, a former member of the Indian Administrative Service, is a writer,documentary film-maker and freelance journalist and editor. The Top of the Raintree is her second published novel. She also runs an organization working in the field of education, the Surya Trust, which is a passionate commitment with her.
