9780099268222: Snakes and Ladders: Glimpses of Modern India

With a novelist's eye for detail and colour, Gita Mehta writes of the continent of contradictions that is host to one-sixth of the world's population. The world's largest democracy, it still practices the caste system. It's a burgeoning economic superpower, and one of the poorest nations on earth. It has the world's largest film industry, and the world's oldest religions. It is an ancient civilisation celebrating fifty years as a modern nation, entering a new international order many believe will belong to China and India. Now as never before, the world wants to know what contemporary India is all about.
