From Midnight to the MillenniumBook - 1997
As India celebrates half a century of independence from British rule, Shashi Tharoor, the prize-winning author of The Great Indian Novel, conducts a searching examination of his India -- a land of unparalleled diversity and extraordinary challenges, described by the British historian E. P. Thompson as "the most important country for the future of the world". In a series of interlinked themes -- "bread versus freedom", "centralization versus federalism", "pluralism versus fundamentalism", and "globalization versus self-sufficiency" -- Shashi Tharoor explains why India stands on the cusp of the most crucial debates of our time, and why the way India resolves these debates will decide whether the twenty-first century will give us a world safe for diversity. Always engaging, often impassioned, India, My India shows once again the insight and flair that have placed Shashi Tharoor in the front rank of India's writers.
