Product Description

Incarnations: India in 50 Lives Hardcover by Sunil Khilnani

For all of India’s myths, its sea of news and ethical epics, Indian historical past continues to be a apparently unpeopled position. Sunil Khilnani’s Incarnations fills that house: recapturing the human measurement of ways the arena’s biggest democracy got here to be. On this shocking and deeply researched e book, accompanying his best BBC Radio 4 collection, Khilnani explores the lives of 50 Indians, from the spiritualist Buddha to the capitalist Dhirubhai Ambani –lives that remove darkness from India’s wealthy, numerous prior and its steady ferment of concepts. 

Khilnani’s trenchant snap shots of emperors, warriors, philosophers, poets, stars, and company titans–a few well-known, a few unjustly forgotten-deliver feeling, wry humour, and unusual perception to social dilemmas that reach from precedent days to our personal. Beautifully written with both scholarship and an enviably light touch, thoughtfully constructed and enviably erudite in its wide-ranging references, and as much at ease discussing higher mathematics and philosophy as politics and art, Incarnations is a major work by one of India’s most impressive minds, and the best possible introduction to both the complexities and the charms of Indian history.


Incarnations: India in 50 Lives Hardcover by Sunil Khilnani

As he trips around the usa, and thru its prior, Khilnani uncovers extra than simply historical past. In rocket launches and Ayurveda name centres, in slum temples and Bollywood studios, in California communes and dirty ports, he examines the continuing, and regularly unexpected, relevance of the women and men who’ve made India – and the arena – what it’s. Their tales will tell, transfer and entertain this e book’s many readers.
