Sundeep brings a flair which is fast disappearing. Which is why this book is so important. And so soulful.’ Suhel SethThe Global Desi: Reflections on Home and Away was born out of Sundeep Bhutoria’s newspaper columns and blogs chronicling his travels across the globe and his observations on matters that affect all our lives. Divided into three sections ― Food & Travel, Social Issues and Literature ― the columns take readers on an exciting journey of discovery ― of places and people, with India at its very heart. Be it a quirky café in Brazil or a glimpse of Rajasthan in Rome, be it a commentary on social etiquette (or lack thereof) during a pandemic or behind-the-scenes notes on the largest literary festival in the world, this book informs, amuses and provokes in equal measure.
