India - An Imperfect View
In this wide-ranging collection of snap writings and impromptu essays, the author presents a kaleidoscopic portrait of India – its rich social and cultural moorings, its economic opportunities and challenges, its youthful modernity, and its many future hopes and aspirations.
His lens is imperfect and his characters are unremarkable and commonplace - an ambitious barber, a reluctant driver, a failed student, a budding entrepreneur, and a wily politician, amongst others, but they live extraordinary lives – given their context and circumstances.
This book is a journey on a train without a destination, the author sitting with passengers, sharing their intimate experiences, but also looking outside, watching objects pass by and yet unable to recognize them.
It is a trip not to introspect or assess India but simply to witness the commonplace and the mundane – in all its darkness, its splendour, and its inner beauty.
