Have we ever stopped and asked ourselves that whatever we do, has a collective impact on India. Or that giving tax to our Government or raising a ruckus over the thing that our Government did is not our only duty towards India.

No, we need to do more!

I really like Tarun Deep’s writing style, crisp and to the point. This is my second book from the Author. When he asked me to review his second book, I grabbed the opportunity with both hands as his first book ‘The Journey – The traveler within’ was

‘Ghalib it is just a good though to pamper oneself.’ Quotes Tarundeep Singh in his new book What is an Indian, while referring to independence. Are we really independent, is what he wants to ask. Indians and Americans he says are only concerned with race and financial status. But owing to the caste, religion, linguistic and many other diversities he says the Indian is more confused than the American. He says despite all the feminism, an Indian woman is still not accorded equality of status and o ...more

This book depicts the current social, economical and to some extent political landscape of our country India. Though the book is high with dose of philosophy, but in a true sense it explores the moral and ethical issues and challenges that have gripped our country. After reading this book I felt as we Indians are headed in a wrong direction, there is a lot of difference on number of aspects, youth getting spoiled in call centres, and in drugs etc.

It's Independence Day week and this is best to read at this time
On the first page itself author apologized, as he wrote, what he wanted to write, and not what reader wanted to read. He explores the area, no other author might interested mentioning.
This book is divided into 11 small chapters, which make it an easy read. But hold on, inspite of easy language and short articles, you need a good mind to consumes what he says.

The dedication of the book to Guru Teg Bahadur and the late grandmother of the author, Sardarni Satwant Kaur, who always taught him to be an Indian sets the tone for the text.

For Tarundeep, an Indian is not an individual but a set of traits that he believes will live longer than mankind itself. However, there is a big problem. This set of traits, as imbibed by our past generations and passed on to us, is now facing extinction. The folly, Singh observes, lies in

If you were asked a question "What have you done for your country?", do you have any answer? Would you be stumped or do you have any answer?

This book will get you thinking about the way we are operating as a country. No, I don't mean in political sense, I mean the attitude we have. The author has done a great job with the book and with the message he wants to give. Covering various social topics, he gets across a strong message that somewhere we have progressed as individuals but we have reached

What is an Indian?

It's a thought provoking and knowledge effective book. The author through this book shares his thoughts and what he believes actual Indian is. The cover of the book is simple yet related to the main theme of the book. The title is what catches all the attention. So this book will give you the idea of what a true Indian should be, what qualities one should possess and what one is lacking behind in order to become a real Indian.

I picked up this book for the title alone. It sort of aroused an urge in me to read and know what exactly it is about. The language is crisp with a good narration . The book not only discusses various topics like corruption, superstition, gender equality etc but also throws light on Youth Loneliness, addiction, the impact of western culture as well. The author emphasizes on the fact that one needs to bring in a change in one's thinking so as to advance the country's progress.

India Stands for a Sovereign, Socialist, Secular, Democratic Republic.
India achieved Freedom from oppression, slavery and illiteracy, thanks to so many accounts of sacrifices and protests. But was it enough? Is it enough?
The constitution provides us Social, Economic and Political Justice... But do we really do justice to others?
We have Liberty of thought, expression, belief, faith and worship...
But we dedicate all our thinking towards superstitions; we only express jealousy; and we don't respec

This book is a compilation of the author’s thoughts on various aspects, which he thinks is necessary to be an Indian. I found myself lost at many times. I just couldn’t able to crack what’s going on.

"If the solutions are bombarded, without realizing if a system can handle it externally as well as internally, then there is no hope of any improvements. We cannot just design any haphazard solution and hope for it to work, but need a strategic study of each issue for best possible optimum solution to tackle them."
