I’m currently reading The Lowland by Jhumpa Lahiri, the tale of two brothers from Calcutta who are incredibly close, despite their differences, until tragedy strikes. I’ve read over half now and it’s a fantastic read.

But it was winter in Calcutta. The people filling the platform, passengers and coolies, and vagrants for whom the station was merely a shelter, were bundled in woolen caps and shawls.”
