Product Description
Love-struck Muhammad Ali Jinnah and Rattanbai 'Ruttie' Petit in the summer of 1916, when they first met at the Darjeeling house of her father and Jinnah's friend Sir Dinshaw Petit. Jinnah was so taken by Ruttie's intelligence and beauty that he took her as his second wife, risking the breaking of all ties with Sir Dinshaw. Ruttie died at the Taj Hotel in Bombay in 1929 as an emaciated recluse at the young age of twenty-nine. Ruttie Jinnah portrays Jinnah before he became the Qaid-e-Azam as we all know him, while tracing his complex relationship with Ruttie, its blossoming and souring, against the backdrop of the Indian freedom struggle and Partition.
