    Description

    India: A Wounded Civilization is a book on politics by V. S. Naipaul.

    Summary of the Book

    V. S. Naipaul looks back at India after his initial semi-autobiographical account of his time in the country. Now, he turns his eye towards one of the darkest hours of the country, the hour of the Emergency. He observes the haunting tests which push Indian democracy to its knees, and he examines the vivid emotions every Indian has felt during that era of darkness. As always, his observations evoke a feeling of first hand experience which is difficult to shrug off. He writes of the damages which India has done to itself, and to its history in that time, and mourns over the fact that after a millenia of foreign rule, India has yet to discover an ideology of regeneration. This book paints a sombre picture of a time when India’s freedom was put in question by the actions of its government and by the turmoils of its politics.
