'Seabrook has chosen to describe an India so particular, so far off the beaten track, and so actual that, in his painstaking reconstructions of scenes, his careful listening and reporting of people's words, and his lucid exposition of present-day realities, he succeeds where so many have failed ...A powerful book, and a clear-eyed account presented with sympathy, insight and conviction. Only those who truly love India can look at her with such a penetrating gaze.' Resurgence Images of India as a land of ancient and unchanging tradition persist in the popular Western imagination and when India appears in the Western media, it is frequently as the site of communal violence, atrocities against women, casteism, backwardness, poverty and disease. Challenging stereotypic images, Notes from Another India is a journey through an India rarely seen by the visitor. Part-travel writing and part-reportage, by a journalist who knows the country well, Notes from Another India explores positive initiatives taken by the people's movements and grassroots organisations in present-day India. Evoking place, both rural and urban, and drawing on the personal accounts of activists, development practitioners and others from across the country, Jeremy Seabrook provides the general reader, the traveller and all those interested in India with a unique and positive insight to contemporary India.
