A Flight of Pigeons is set in Shahjahanpur, a small town 250 miles east of Delhi in India, during the revolt of 1857 against the British. The story is narrated by Ruth Labadoor, a young British girl, whose father gets killed as the revolt spreads to Shahjahanpur. She, her mother Mariam, and a few other surviving members of her family then get forcibly abducted by Javed Khan, a fiery pathan (true pathans -- as per the book -- are descendents of Afghan immigrants), who brings them to his house where he expresses his desire to marry Ruth. Mariam, who is wordly wise and resourceful, manages to persuade Javed Khan (not without a little bit of difficulty) to wait for the outcome of the revolt to be decided before marrying Ruth.

The next one year in the life of the Labadoors is an emotional roller-coaster where on one hand they are showered with compassion and affection from almost all of Javed Khan's relatives (there are many interesting and funny anecdotes); on the other hand, they live in constant fear that if the British rule is not restored, Javed Khan will eventually have his way and marry Ruth.

Ruskin Bond's style of storytelling is extremely plain and simple, but with an underlying humanity, and even the most vile characters are portrayed with a lot of sympathy and understanding. The book is based on true events and gives an interesting insight into the lives of both the British and Pathans in mid nineteenth century India. The book could have been a little longer (its barely 140 pages), but its still fun to read.

Do watch "Junoon" if you can get it - hopefully it may have English subtitles.

This cinematizes this book. A Shashi Kapoor movie, with his wife Jennifer playing the girl's mother, and Nafisa Ali as the girl - the object of Javed's desire.

An example of some of the best Hindi movies made in Bombay.

(Before garbage Hindi movies got the silly moniker "Bollywood".)
