Kali Ma

A fictional account of the journey by an English gentleman and his wife from Calcutta to the ruined fortress at Raj Mahal, in 1850-52. They are investigating a possible resurrection of the thuggee movement, but instead get embroiled in the Santhal Hul rebellion, which was much closer to a Communist insurrection than banditry.

The main theme of the novel is how two modern ideologies – nationalism and feminism – were reacted too in a medieval way in the mid-19th century.
