Description
A journalist's new-life adventure exploring all India has to offer
 
A chance conversation with her greengrocer about the portrayal of India in the media inspired journalist Justine Hardy to leave London and spend a year working at the Indian Express in New Delhi. Her new life--with a quirky landlord who turns out to be a former Rajput prince--takes her all over India, from polo matches and the manicured lawns of Assam tea gardens to city slums in Delhi, stumbling across terrorist sentiments, exploring the HIV problem, and having an inspiring encounter with the Dalai Lama.
Reviews
"'There is a vitality in the writing and a feeling for Indian life which Kipling would have loved... fine descriptive passages and plenty of humour...' Daily Telegraph '...she gained enough access to Indian society to fill every page with Dickensian detail and hilarious dialogue. No matter where you dive in - be it a slum school or a polo match, a disco or a tea garden - you'll quickly find yourself reading the entire book, just for the fun of it.' The Guardian"
