India Shastra: Reflections on the Nation in our Time
Shashi Tharoor, a parliamentarian, has written short essays on contemporary India in this volume.He draws some of the contradictions and public debates in recent time during the early days of NaMo regime (NDA II). Few of the essays earlier appeared as blog posts and newspaper columns.
Some of the essays also portray present day public debates, contradictions and pseudo-science emanated due to claims and counter-claims by different socio-politico-religious organizations, while some other essays compare NaMo regime with the UPA-II and earlier regimes. An excellent title to know the other side of stories and worries, which comes from a brilliant narrator.
