Summary
At the stroke of midnight on August 15th, 1947, as India declares independence from Great Britain, babies are being born with super powers. Two of them are switched at birth by a nurse in a Bombay hospital. And so it is that Saleem Sinai, the illegitimate child of a beggar woman, and Shiva, the only son of a wealthy couple, are fated to live the destinies meant for each other. Over the next three decades, Saleem and Shiva find themselves on opposite sides of many a conflict
