Bombay Swastika swings from a Nazi Berlin gearing up for its Final Solution, to 1964 Bombay, where Ernst Steiger, a German Jew, accidentally finds himself caught up in the murder of a young tribal, killed amidst allegations of something being stolen from a secure American compound. With the monsoons laying siege on the city, the reader accompanies Ernst past Bombay?s refugee camps and haunted whorehouses; food shortages, textbook mafias, communist protests against American PL 480 Food Aid, and peculiar happenings at India?s nuclear facility; where Dr. Homi J. Bhabha, the nation?s atomic mastermind, gets drawn into a conspiracy hatched in his absence. This one-of-a-kind thriller unfolds through the eyes of a motley cast-Salim Ali, the South Indian, Muslim engineer and committed Marxist; Bhairavi, the enigmatic and sensual refugee girl; Sethji, the dowry messiah; Tsering Tufan-Homi Bhabha?s Smiling Buddha-dying from radiation exposure; and Andhi Ma, the blind mendicant who sees what we can?t. Bombay Swastika is an exploration of the dark world of absolute truths.
