This collection of interviews conducted by Ramin Jahanbegloo looks at India and Indias place in the world today through the experiences of twenty-seven leading Indian personalities. Jahanbegloo, as someone attempting to understand India, questions the contradictions of life in India: the long history of religious tolerance and growing religious fundamentalism, democracy and caste, equality and the low status of women, the affluent urban areas and the impoverished rural tracts. But looking beyond these contradictions, Jahanbegloo finds that after sixty years of Independence, the society, economy, and culture of India continue to develop in many ways. Including interviews with Romila Thapar, Partha Chatterjee, Ashis Nandy, Mushirul Hasan, M.J. Akbar, Vandana Shiva, the Dalai Lama, Mrinal Sen, Sonal Mansingh, and many others, this book is a one-of-a-kind view of contemporary India, for Indians as well as for non-Indians.
