India: A Mosaic PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

India: A Mosaic free pdf India. A Mosaic - one nation, but many peoples, many languages, many religions, many political conflicts. In this collection, distinguished writers from East and West bring their distinctive perspectives to Indian history, politics and literatures. In this volume, seven distinguished writers offer penetrating insights into the complexities of the subcontinent. Roderick MacFarquhar reflects on the legacy of Empire and Partition, Ian Baruma considers secularism and Indian democracy, Pankaj Mishra remembers life in Benares, and Christopher de Bellaigue writes on a violent Bombay. But the volatile intersection of history, politics and culture on which they focus haunt Indian literature too, as shown in essays by Nobel Prize winner Amartya Sen on Rabindranath Tagore, Hilary Mantel on Rohinton Mistry and Anita Desai on Indian women's writing.
