Product Description

Based on the much acclaimed BBC Radio 4 Series, “Incarnations: India in 50 Lives” is a deeply researched book that looks forward to unearth the different myths, histories, moral epics and stories of and about India by exploring the lives of 50 acclaimed Indians.

In a book that spans across centuries, Incarnations: India in 50 Lives is regarded as a path-breaking book that traces the lives of eminent Indians: from Lord Buddha, the spiritual leader, to Dhirubhai Ambani, the founding father of one of the world's largest private company.

The book gradually tries to decipher the human dimension that led India to stand up and be counted as the world’s largest democracy. The book sheds light on the varied cultural and socio-political aspects of the India through different dignitaries with a treasure-trove of vivid ideas and inspirations.

In doing so, Khilnani discusses about eminent emperors, spiritual leaders, poets, philosophers, corporate giants and stars and brings waves of some long-forgotten yet interesting incidents in his own humorous ways along with some atypical insight into social problems right from the ancient times to the contemporary.

What moves the readers more is the fact that the book promises to be something more than mere history of India, or a synopsis of certain great leaders’ lives. By introducing epic incidents, like rocket launches to India’s ayurvedic call centres and by talking about the grand Bollywood studios to the slum temples, the book examines different strata of people—people who contributed to make India the country it is.

Highly acclaimed and appreciated, 'Incarnations: India in 50 Lives’ has been written in a genial light tone with a scholarly touch and is a well researched book.
