Mark Tully is incomparable. No foreign commentator has a greater understanding of the passions, the contradictions, the charms and the resilience that constitute India. In his long-awaited new book he and his colleague, Gillian Wright, delve further than before into this nation of over one billion people, attempting to unravel a culture that, famously, has always resisted unravelling.
'India In Slow Motion' is the account of a journey that, for Tully and Wright, has no true beginning or end. Covering a diverse range of subjects - from Hindu extremism to child labour, Sufi mysticism to the crisis in agriculture, the persistence of political corruption to the problem of Kashmir, this book challenges the preconceptions others have about India, as well as those India has about itself, creating a portrait at once provocative, humorous, searching and deeply humane.
