A beautiful meditation on the modernization of India. This is not a history, but rather a thoughtful book about what it means to lose and then find your cultural heritage. Bravo to this writer. His parents emigrated from India to the great melting pot and raised their son as an American. He returned to India and re-discovered what it means to be Indian. Against this journey of re-discovery is the context of the revolution of development and the crooked path of modernization taking place in India. Exquisitely written and very profound as well as informative. Highly recommend.
