India: One Man's Personal Journey Round the Subcontinent

by Sanjeev Bhaskar - £9.99  Harper Collins Publishers (2008)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9780007247394 | ISBN 10: 0007247397

As a young British Asian growing up in 1960s west London, writer and actor Sanjeev Bhaskar was fed stories of exotic old India - of cobras and leopards, trapping fireflies and riding in rickshaws. But his childhood visits to the old country revealed stifling heat, powercuts and the pervasive aroma of cow dung - baffling to a young boy brought up in an England of fish and chips and light drizzle.
 
Now, years later, Sanjeev embarks on a uniquely personal journey through the heart of India, where he is reunited with old relatives with traumatic stories of Partition - but also discovers a shiny new India of high-tech industry and glittering Bollywood kitsch. Sanjeev paints a unique picture of this chaotic, beautiful and remarkable country - this is India as you've never seen it before.
