Looking back at India’s past beyond the realm of academia, Salman
Rushdie’s imaginary saga Midnight’s Children is the starting
point for the analysis of India’s current cultural and political situation,
which is influenced by historical events and, nowadays, by modernization and
development processes in a time of neocolonialism, globalization, and
transnationalism. In his postcolonial and postmodern novel, Rushdie
transcends politics and co-opts political and literary power through the
de- and reconstruction of India’s youngest past by analyzing post-colonial
issues, such as identity-building.
