Rushdie does a Hat-trick with "Midnight's children"

Salman Rushdie's literary work Midnight's Children, which has already won the Booker and the "Booker of Bookers" has been adjudged the "Best of the Booker" among works published since 1969. The other worthy contenders for the honor were literary heavy weights like Peter Carey, Pat Barker, JM Coetzee, Nadine Gordimer and JG Farrell. Midnight's Children, a post colonial account of Independent India with Rushdie's unique language and style, was published in 1981 and created a new trend in English language fiction.
