Description

Twenty extraordinary pieces that engage with the paradoxes of everyday life and present a captivating account of contemporary India.

This sparkling medley of articles introduces us to some aspects of India which are witnessed daily but often overlooked. The themes are richly varied: from Manjula Padmanabhan's illustrated autorickshaw tour to Ruchi Joshi's piece on the enigma that was Satyajit Ray. Mukul Kesavan strays from the campaign trail looking for the real India but finds himself in foreign parts; while Pankaj Mishra recounts the day that an electioneering Sonia Gandhi descended on Goa.

Elsewhere also includes articles by a host of other brilliant writers, such as Amit Chaudhuri, Anita Roy, Bishakha Data, Gautam Bhatia, Latha Anantharaman, Sohaila Abdulali and Tabish Khair.

Culled from the pages of the India Magazine, a journal that in its final years attracted some of India's best writers, this collection presents a captivating account of contemporary India.
