In Pragati

My recent piece in Mint on Guy Sorman's account of contemporary China The Year of the Rooster also appears today in the new issue of Pragati, the monthly magazine of The Indian National Interest.

I signed up for Pragati when you last gave the link - thanks. Though some of the articles in Pragati are a bit formal, their analyses are well thought out and insightful.

On a related note, I was wondering if you were thinking of reviewing Ramachandra Guha's India after Gandhi? I haven't read anything at all about the book in the blogs I follow. Maybe because it's too big - I myself have been reading it steadily the last few weeks, yet am only about halfway through it. I've liked it very much so far - the book throws light on so many forgotten but important stories.

Hari - I'm in the same position as you. I've been reading Guha's book very slowly over the last couple of months alongside other books. You're quite right - it's probably the most important book published in India this year, for the breadth of its scope and the depth of its analysis as much as the elegance of the writing. I've learnt a lot of things from it that I didn't know about our near past. I promise something on it very soon.

Yes. You must review Guha's book.
