The novel is set in India and spans several decades of Indian history, from the country’s independence from British rule in 1947 to the declaration of emergency in 1975. The story follows the life of Saleem Sinai, who is born at the stroke of midnight on the day of India’s independence. Saleem discovers that he is one of the “Midnight’s Children,” a group of children born at the same moment, each endowed with special powers and abilities.

As Saleem grows up, he finds himself at the center of key moments in Indian history, including the partition of India and Pakistan, the wars between the two countries, and the political upheavals of the 1960s and 1970s.
