    Description
    It was only after I became an adult that I began to ask questions about that famous "tryst". Why was the speech made in English? Was Nehru just a romantic or a real leader? And did he not know when he talked of the world being asleep at midnight that it was not midnight everywhere?' Even sixty-seven years after it became a modern nation state, democratic India has been unable to meet the most basic needs of its people. A dangerous mix of colonialism, socialism and statism has brought about this situation. India's people, both rich and poor, have been at the mercy of a political class whose motive for being in public life is power and pelf rather than public service. From one of the country's most experienced and respected journalists, India's Broken Tryst is a bold analysis of why this state of affairs has come to pass - why has the Indian state failed to live up to the promise made 'long years ago at the stroke of the midnight hour'?

    Excellent journey of India post independence

    Tavleen Singh is one of the few journalists today who have seen the generations of politics in India post independence. Her anecdotes and encounters with the leaders of political stage time and again form the flow of narration in her recent book. The sick state of governance in India, borne out of hereditary democracy or rather democratic feudalism practiced by Congress Party and it's similar ideological parties since Independence forms the crux of the book. The postmortem analysis of Congres...

    This is a great book to read. Really enjoyed the journey that this book takes reader on. I must say people who have perceived notion of our post independence history must read to have great clarification and alternate view.

    Review of India's Broken Tryst by Tavleen Singh

    I will give it a 9 out of 10. Great narration. Looks for like a thriller than a non-fiction. Extremely readable. Please go ahead and read this book.
