Indian Summers

Indian Summers

Set against the sweeping grandeur of the Himalayas and tea plantations of Northern India, the drama tells the rich and explosive story of the decline of the British Empire and the birth of modern India, from both sides of the experience. But at the heart of the story lie the implications and ramifications of the tangled web of passions, rivalries and clashes that define the lives of those brought together in this summer which will change everything. It's the summer of 1932. India dreams of Independence, but the British are clinging to power. In the foothills of the Himalayas stands Simla; a little England where every summer the British power-brokers of this nation are posted to govern during the summer months. Written by Channel4

In 1932, Alice Whelan, fleeing a faithless husband in England and passing herself off as a widow, arrives with her baby in Simla, India - where her brother Ralph is private secretary to the Viceroy. On the train, she meets the missionary Dougie Raworth and his waspish wife Sarah, with their young son. A little boy is lifeless on the railway track, poisoned for being a half-caste, and Dougie and his assistant Leena save him, naming him Adam (after he tells them that he has no name). Another new arrival is young Scot Ian McLeod, come to stay with his uncle, Stafford Armitage, a drunken tea plantation owner, and Sarah sets her sights on him. Ambitious local boy Aafrin Delal works for Ralph, to the disgust of his sister Sooni, a nationalist who supports Gandhi and daubs anti-British slogans on the Viceroy's wall. Alice attends the first evening of the season at the Empire Club, run by the influential military widow Cynthia Coffin. Cynthia arranges for Ralph to have sex with wealthy ...

Following the shooting, a curfew is imposed, whilst Ralph's assistant Ronnie brings in a journalist to raise Ralph's profile, though Ralph directs him towards Aafrin, still lying injured in hospital. Alice goes to see if she can help Aafrin's family, whilst Ralph visits the gunman, nationalist Chandru Mohan, in prison, only to be attacked by him. Ralph turns to Cynthia for solace, by which time Mohan has been found dead in his cell. Armitage gives his nephew, Ian, a tour of the plantation, where he meets his neighbour, Ramu Sood, towards whom Armitage adopts a racist attitude, but to whom he also apparently owes money. The Raworths' marriage continues to disintegrate as Dougie gives the orphanage priority, whilst Aafrin wakes from his coma to find Alice by his bed. Madeleine and Ralph share a bath.

Ralph offers Aafrin, now fully recovered, a promotion, whilst Ranu asks Ian to intervene with his uncle for money Armitage owes him. Sooni canvasses for independence, though her meeting is brutally interrupted and she is arrested. Aafrin asks Ralph to secure her release, which he does, as well as requesting Aafrin and Alice to say the same thing at the inquest on Chandru Mohan. Alice volunteers to help at the orphanage, where Leena tells her that many of the children are not orphans but mixed race, rejected by their parents, and they observe Aafrin with his secret lover, Sita. The Sipi Fair takes place, where Indians can enter the grounds of the British Club. Here, Sarah accuses Leena of having an affair with Dougie, and Armitage collapses while fighting with Ranu, who has served him with an eviction notice. At the inquest, Aafrin and Alice obey Ralph's request, but afterwards Aafrin finds an interesting document. Written by don @ minifie-1

Armitage dies and Ranu offers Ian work as his plantation manager, to the disgust of the racist Cynthia Coffin. Believing Ralph only wants Madeleine as a mistress and not a wife, Eugene announces that they are returning to Chicago, prompting Ralph to ask Aafrin if he should propose. Sarah Raworth announces her intention of sending her little son back to England, and, when she fails to get the expected support from Alice, threatens to expose her secret. The Viceroy comes to visit and Aafrin is invited to a dinner in his honour. Here he learns that the authorities are looking for the - possibly fake - certificate linking Chandru Mohan to Gandhi's Congress Party, which Aafrin stole. He asks Alice to take a message to Sita, requesting that Sooni destroy the Certificate, but Sita, aware that the Delals disapprove of her, fails to do so and the document is found.

The Viceroy prepares a lavish engagement party for Madeleine and Ralph, though both Cynthia and Alice question his motive, whilst Cynthia also learns from Eugene that the Mathers have no money. At a meeting to discuss political power-sharing, Ralph supports Dr Kamble, representative of the despised Hindu 'Untouchables', aiming to get him on the side against the Congress party, and invites him to the party, incurring the displeasure of the Viceroy and many of the Brahmin guests. Encouraged by Cynthia, Ian asks Ranu why he has employed him as his manager and is told he will learn business skills in exchange for letting Ranu use a British name for his plantation. Aafrin's father tries to persuade his wife to accept the Untouchable Sita, who has lied to Aafrin by claiming that the certificate is safe. At the party, Alice and Aafrin share more than a secret and Adam's mother appears, to present him to his natural father. Written by don @ minifie-1

As Jaya's body is discovered, Ralph claims not to know her, but Ian - questioned by the police - mentions that Ramu had claimed she'd stolen from him. As a result, Ramu is arrested and a confession is forced from him. Feeling guilty, Ralph persuades the Viceroy to donate a large contribution to the orphanage where Adam lives, causing Leena to conclude that Adam is Ralph's son. He also confesses to Cynthia that he once loved Jaya, and they both momentarily suspect that the other may have been the killer. Meanwhile, Ian believes more and more in Ramu's innocence and alienates himself from the other Britons as he tries to give him a false alibi. Elsewhere, local police confront Aafrin with the stolen certificate, leading him to accuse Alice of betraying him. Written by don @ minifie-1

Ramu's trial begins in a packed court room where he is defended by Vinod Mukesh, assisted by Sooni, with oily British lawyer High Slater prosecuting. Despite Ramu's warning that it will alienate him from the British community Ian testifies for Ramu but in vain as the case against him is found. Leena, suspecting that Ralph is Adam's father, also takes the stand to suggest that an unknown Briton, the father of the child, was the killer and Sarah is distraught when Dougie rises to stop the examination. However after the trial Dougie returns the Viceroy's cheque to Ralph, telling him he is not welcome at the mission school. Aafrin apologizes to Alice and, aware that it was Sita who failed to deliver the message, rejects her. Written by don @ minifie-1

A vote is taken to lift the ban on Indians at the club and Cynthia is not happy with the outcome. Sarah Raworth and her son return to England though her parting from Dougie is not passionate. Aware that Adam is Ralph's son, Dougie rebukes his fellow Briton for his lack of concern but is grateful to Leena for allowing him to continue running the orphanage. After Bhupi attempts suicide Ralph tells Aafrin that they grew up together and it becomes apparent to Aafrin who really killed Jaya. He rushes to halt the execution but is too late.
