A very interesting look at how the legacy of the caste system interacts with modern Indian politics to create today s India Definitely relies heavily on anecdotal accounts but still very informative for someone mostly unfamiliar with India s politics and culture. Mark Tully, as a BBC correspondent in New Delhi, made India his second home Any outsider s perspective on India has a potential to offer unbiased review over happenings in our country But, at the same time, it is also fraught with a danger of misunderstanding India But, Tully offers best of both worlds He takes a balanced view in analyzing India s growth and development story His extensive knowledge of India, his ability to speak fluent Hindi make his insight all thereliable. This book is a collection of ten brilliantly elucidated essays that cover the indian social caste and class, religion, politics, wildlife, business, bureaucracy, agriculture and socio political environment.With deep rooted knowledge about everything Indian, Mark Tully writes crisply and proves yet again why he is one of the best contemporary narrators of everything Indian.
