The Third Mumbai

Author Name: Philipose Thomas | Format: Paperback | Genre : Young Adult Fiction | Other Details

The earth looks calm from space. Its majestic rotation continues on its eternal journey—a serene sight. From the high sky, all looks well over the Indian subcontinent with its unmistakable jutting coastline. The ethereal vision is suddenly muddled by a mushroom-shaped cloud arising from the west coast of the Mumbai peninsula. Shortly thereafter, similar clouds arise. This time, they’re over Islamabad and Karachi.

What would a post-apocalyptic India look like?

Philipose Thomas’ The Third Mumbai is the first book to explore this question. With geo-political relations between India and Pakistan deteriorating rapidly, nuclear attacks become inevitable. Set in the aftermath of such a devastating war, the author portrays a stark picture of a barely-recovering India.

Filled with pirates, gangsters, whales and guerrilla attacks, The Third Mumbai is a story of loss, hope and justice that is sure to keep readers enthralled.

Philipose Thomas

Philipose Thomas presently lives in Panjim, Goa and works as a trainer for a telecommunications company. The Third Mumbai is his first book. It took him almost three years to complete the book while working a busy job. The book was first published digitally in 2015, but it lay unnoticed by Indian readers.

The book is the first attempt of its kind to portray a post-nuclear war India, an eerie vision that could soon become reality. A great deal of research and redrafting was undertaken before it got to its present form. The author believes the book is a synopsis of a much larger story and races you through an exciting and original plot.
