India combines essayist and prize-winning author Shashi Tharoor's distinctive and clearsighted prose with Ferrante Ferranti's magnificent photographs to illustrate what makes India the country it is today. We go from the fast-growing metropolises to 'God's own country', Kerala; from the continuing debates on traditional and modern identities--for instance whether women should wear saris or 'Western dress'-- to scenes of unfettered play on the streets. India's sweep captures religious and familial scenes on the banks of Ganga and the sparkling colours of Bollywood; from the Buddhist remains of Ajanta to high-tech IT studios in Bangalore. Here on view are both the familiar and lesser known elements of India.
With its perceptive and illuminating insights and enchanting images of the

shifting and enduring aspects of everyday life, this book is a vivid portrayal of this diverse and fascinating country.
