The story is set in Old Delhi, and the book is divided into four parts. Clear Light Of Day revolves around the Das family. Bimla, the eldest sister, lives in her childhood home. This spinster works as a history teacher at a women’s college, and takes care of Baba, her autistic younger brother. Tara, the younger sister, lives in America with her husband and two children. The fourth sibling, Raja, is successful and brilliant, and resides in Hyderabad. Tara, now in her 40s, comes to visit her family in Old Delhi. She stays with Bimla and Baba, and slowly realizes that a lot of family tension has built up over the years. Bimla refuses to attend Raja’s daughter’s wedding. Tara later learns that after Raja left behind his two siblings in Old Delhi, he became the landlord of their childhood home. This insulted Bimla, and she never forgave her brother. The second part of Clear Light Of Day goes back to the time of the partition. All the four characters are adolescents, and their parents have passed away. Raja is keen on learning Urdu, and eventually moves to Hyderabad. Tara gets married, and also leaves. The third part of Clear Light Of Day goes back into an era where India was still under British rule. Here, the three eldest siblings are waiting for Baba to be born. The final portion of this novel transports readers back into contemporary India, and shows how Tara tries to mend relationships between the siblings.
