    A nice read to know the other side of stories and worries, which comes from a brilliant narrator

    In book "India Shastra: Reflections on the Nation in our Time" parliamentarian Shashi Tharoor writes short essays on contemporary India, and more particularly Tharoor draws some of the contradictions and public debates in recent time during the early days of NaMo regime (NDA II). Few of the essays earlier appeared as blog posts and newspaper columns. Some of the essays also portray present day public debates, contradictions and pseudo-science emanated due to claims and counter-claims by diffe...

    A book for the Political Masters

    I have been a great admirer of Shashi Tharoor.Some of his books during his UN phase were simply magnificent.Since then,he has had to "temper" his views somewhat,but this latest one takes the cake.Basically,he agrees with the development agenda of the BJP Govt(being the type of person he is and with his international exposure),but he daren't praise too much for fear of being in trouble with his political masters.The result is a hotch-potch of silent praise and political accomodation

    With this...

    Decent product

    was expecting something like 'pax indica'. This book covers only 1 year facts and data. Expected was much more broader time period and thinking.

    Unnecessarily Complicated...

    The content of the book are restricted to just 1 year on the Indian National/ Political activity.
    Also, the tone is not unbiased(as expected).
    I was expecting that Mr. Tharoor would stop restricting his books to a particular timeline and write atleast 50% of the chapters in a general sense.
    Not worth the huge cost.....the physical appearance of the book is far better than the content.
    Plus, the flow of chapters is disturbing....the book starts with more boring topics and ends in the interesti...

    Great writer but a shackled patriot

    Dr. Shashi tharoor brings a liveliness and an artistic touch to the contemporary debate.There are views expressed where he tries to break the congress aura and render himself as a neutral observer. I must say one of the only congressmen who think emergency as a period of threat to democracy.But credit must be given where it is due especially on the social debates.

    Poor packaging and shipping

    Brand new book arrived with edges worn, bent and crumpled, as the packaging was not done correctly (packed so tightly that it compressed the book's edges). Top and back cover had creases all over that gave a disheveled look. Disappointing service from seller and Flipkart.
