This witty and engaging book gives a remarkable view of India and Indian life before and after Independence. Written with warmth, candor, and a wealth of anecdote, it is the first authoritative account of the subcontinent's turbulent journey from colonial rule to republican statehood.

Provocative, lively and unsparing, with its intimate view of events and personalities, the book will open a fascinating door for countless readers on India's heritage and her present predicament.
