Product Description

Sir Mark Tully was born in Calcutta, India in 1935. He was the Chief of Bureau, BBC, New Delhi for twenty-two years and is an acclaimed author and the regular presenter of the contemplative BBC Radio 4 programme Something Understood. He was awarded the Padma Bhushan in 2005, and was knighted in the New Year Honours list in 2002. In addition to his distinguished broadcasting career, he has written several books about India, including No Full Stops in India, India in Slow Motion (with his partner and colleague Gillian Wright), and The Heart of India. He lives in New Delhi.

Sir Mark Tully is one of the world's leading writers and broadcasters on India, and the presenter of the much loved radio programme 'Something Understood'. In this fascinating and timely work, he reveals the profound impact India has had on his life and beliefs, and what we can all learn from this rapidly changing nation.

Through interviews and anecdotes, he embarks on a journey that takes in the many faces of India, from the untouchables of Uttar Pradesh to the skyscrapers of Gurgaon, from the religious riots of Ayodhya to the calm of a university campus. He explores how successfully India reconciles opposites, marries the sensual with the sacred, finds harmony in discord, and treats certainty with suspicion.

Tully challenges the preconceptions others have about this land of contrasts, as well as those India has about itself. In doing so, he beautifully brings the country and its people to lifeAcute and formidably well-readDeeply thoughtfulA warm and engaging guideThe perspective of an insightful observer who has seen it all
