Apala G. Egan, 'Bastille Day'

The story is based on my memories and experiences in India, where I spent my childhood and youth. Bengal, where I am from, was one of the first regions to fall sway to European powers, both French and English; if the English gained ascendancy in the subcontinent, the French retained their strongholds. The story is set during the twilight of that era.
