Product description

Review

"Pavan Varma is one of India's most admired and widely-read writers of non-fiction, and in Being Indian he has excelled himself . . . Brilliant . . . Varma shows how India's self-image has been distorted by simplistic myth-making, and sets out to find instead what it really means to be Indian" (William Dalrymple)

"A well-researched and urgent inquiry that is informed as much by allusions to Hindu mythological texts as it is by a knowledge of current affairs and popular culture" (New Statesman)

"A stimulating and readable polemic" (Sunday Times)

"Elegantly written . . . Being Indian is one of the most subtle recent attempts to analyze the continent-sized mosaic of India" (The Economist) --This text refers to the Paperback edition.

Book Description

A compelling journey through the paradoxes, myths and realities of India, by 'one of the country's most perceptive writers.' (Guardian) --This text refers to the Paperback edition.
