Sanjeev Bhaskar skillfully addresses India's complexities with humour and sensitivity - his rare gift. A great insight to one of the most complex countries.

Bhaskar takes us on a whirlwind trip across India, visiting poor and rich alike with equal attention and interest. India or rather Pakistan was the country of his forbears and clearly India is a place he has much love for. He has a great eye and ear for humour and gently lampoons some of the people he encounters in a very British but kindly way. Uppermost in his mind is the terrible violence that erupted between religious communities when the British withdrew. Its a subject he handles tactfully and compassionately, without shirking the terrible facts of the tragedy.
