We would know this by the setting of the story. Set in the Cholistan Desert in Pakistan, the setting at first seems a bit historical. However, jeeps and other modern items identified in the novel indicate that it is in modern times. It is obviously after the time when Pakistan was part of India, so it is the second half of the 20th century.
