Published by HarperCollins India in December 2013, “Windhorse”, the debut novel by Kaushik Barua, follows the lives of a group of Tibetans who join the armed resistance movement against the Chinese.
From a feature on Kaushik Barua on The Hindu:
Wind Horse, just published by Harper Collins India, is a fictionalised account of the Tibetan armed resistance movement against the Chinese. A perceptive raconteur Barua — now employed with the United Nations in Rome — situates the narrative that chases a significant span of modern Tibetan history mainly through two protagonists — Lhasang Tsering and Norbu. One is forced to flee the warmth of his homeland to India, and the other is an expatriate living in India, never been to Tibet. Creating in the course a complex, multi-layered hessian that also allows each to view home from opposite points — within to outside and vice versa — even when they are twined together in search for a common end.
