History & Politics

In our precarious world of old grudges and ruthless high-tech terrorism, smart young American graduate student, Jill Rothchild, and her three Indian friends, Venkie (a RAW agent), Sing and Kinnari (two Narikuravas), zigzag north across India's landscapes, dodging lethal attacks, going all out to avert a catastrophe. Racing through India's varied atmospheres and running into its many quirky personalities, in a multitude of disguises and vehicles, these four friends are always skating on the verge of disaster. They improvise, discover inner resources and ditch murderous thugs in hoodies and Bluetooth earphones, again and again. Each time they narrowly escape with their lives. Learning as they go, the four friends make their precarious way through mountains between Pakistan and Afghanistan, to reach Kebab - the extremist leader orchestrating not only their demise but also a cataclysmic strike against India. Can they stop his plan, an unprecedented assault on the electronic infrastructure that would wreak havoc all over the subcontinent? Gypsy Escapades tells that exciting story, asking: is it possible to fight terrorism. About the Author William J.
