Product description

Review

'Oliver Balch beautifully captures the spirit and rhythm of a nation. Balch foregoes analysis and history-book fact-feeding for a collection of lively anecdotes gathered from across the subcontinent ... The stories are illuminating, and Balch s writing is just plain excellent.' --Irish Times

'Oliver Balch brings a zestful, youthful approach to a sub-continent as ancient as history but young in the perpetual reinvention of itself ... Energised and excited by India, Balch's set pieces add up to a well-made drama of lives in a complex, colourful, competitive landscape where extremes, often to their mutual dismay and distress, collude and collide.' --Iain Finlayson, The Times

The first thing to recommend is how well written it is. The second is that as well as talking to tycoons, Balch also asks ordinary folk about the bewildering pace of change.' --Conde Nast Traveller

Book Description

In India Rising, Oliver Balch travels around India telling true stories from the front line of an emerging economy.
