Ratan Kaul is the author of WINGS OF FREEDOM, a historical romance novel set in early twentieth-century British India.

You’ve heard of novels on the British Raj like E.M.Forster’s A Passage to India, Paul Scott’s The Jewel in the Crown and M.M.Kaye’s The Far Pavilions. Now, here’s a novel by an Indian author woven in the fabric of Indian freedom movement, with an Indian’s point of view and depicting the flavor of Indian culture and traditions as they existed a hundred years ago....coinciding with the centenary--1911 to 2011-- celebrations of Delhi as the capital of India.

"Set against the turbulent backdrop of India’s struggle for freedom from English rule at the start of the twentieth century, Wings of Freedom by Ratan Kaul is a compelling mixture of drama, romance and history. Raj, a young Indian man, and Eileen, a young English woman, fall in love despite the societal pressures against it, and in spite of the revolution swirling furiously around them. If you enjoyed The Far Pavilions by M. M. Kaye, you’ll love Wings of Freedom."

Book Sneak Peek

Raju stood pensively on the terrace of his house. The dense fog that had appeared that winter morning dissolved gradually and the red sandstone wall, turrets and bastions of the Red Fort, the great palace of Delhi built three hundred years ago by Moghul Emperor Shah Jahan, glistened in the sunshine. The Jumna River, flowing alongside, caressed its walls on her turbulent journey toward its confluence with the Ganga River in the east, as it had done for time immemorial.
