Discovering India Readathon: Book1

No Full stops in India

No Full Stops in India by Mark Tully I read as my first book for the #DiscoveringIndiaReadathon challenge for book set is post-independence era.

This book is collection of ten stories ( rather real life accounts ) which explore everything from communal conflict in Ahmedabad to communism in Kolkata, from Kumbh Mela in Allahabad, the biggest religious festival in the world, to the television serial on a Hindu epic.


According to the author, India is no longer a land dominated by brown Sahibs imitating the ways of white Sahibs who used to rule them. But India is still a land dominated by foreign thinking. The stores illustrates the way in which western thinking has distorted and still distorts Indian life.

I will post the complete review on this book after the readathon ends.

Read diverse books this month and join #thelastleafboxcampaigm by The Last Leaf Box.
