By A Customer on 16 Dec. 2002
Format: Hardcover
this is a book written with enormous admiration and love for India, with lucid recognition of its problems and shortcomings, but also, encouragingly, with hope and optimism for the future of the country. tackling diverse subjects such as corruption, religious fundamentalism, child labour, the 'IT revolution', Mark Tully maintains a lucid and honest journalism and seeks to go beyond the easy 'colour'piece to bring us a lively and dynamic glimpse into this ever-changing country. It lacks the urgency and inspiration of Naipaul's Indian trilogy, and it can sometimes feel a bit impersonal to the reader used to flamboyant indian literature, but it certainly is journalism at its best and most inspiring.

Ex BBC correspondent Mark Tully writes 10 essays, revealing cultural, political and religious practise within India. Reading this book gave me an idea of the vastness of this region of the world and the subject matter is very well chosen.

The idea of this book seems to be to give a flavour of several aspects of indian life and in this it suceeds. The last chapter on Kashmir has had entire books written on it.

Certain themes emerge throughout the book; political corruption and wretched human selfishness are just two. It doesn't seem to taint Tullys affinity for this country of such rich diversity, but by the end I felt very lucky be governed in England.

In summary, reading this book will give a fascinating insight into a unique way of how a huge country has been ruled, but would be described as important rather than uplifting reading.

Having been a devotee of Mark Tully for many years through his broadcasting and publications, this book continues his insightful accounts of aspects of life in India. His portrayals of traumas experienced by various communities in India are made with a detachment which does not in any way indicate anything less than a high regard for the population at large. His evocation of the India experienced by its various castes and religious groups is sharp and uncompromising. Yet again he exposes the frustrations of everyday life in this country which any visitor will recognise immediately.

A wonderfully candid insight in the form of a travelogue. Tully knows his country and more importantly understands its people cultures, politics and relgions.

I know he's the godfather of fair and even reporting on India, and supposed to be a legend but I found the book slow and disorganised and the examples not very relevant.
