    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.

    Good book

    This was my first book by Sir VS Naipual, it gave me glimpses of his intellect, his way of criticism was so challenging to my general sense of perceiving facts. I became fan of Naipaul after this, and read his entire non-fiction. This is his shortest book and about a growing naipaul, million mutines, the third part of Indian Triology is exahaustive and hopeful about India and nearing Journalism.

    To me, he is the most influential writer that I cam across

    Darkness of India

    This book can be termed to be the kaleidoscopic account of Naipaul's subsequent visits to India; the vicissitudes having conformity of the imaginary thought of the author about this country of diversity. Apart from real experiences the writer has taken the novels of R K Narayan and those of others for analyses of the thought of India and their views.
    He critically talks about the very idea of India, happenings of reconstructions in the staunchly class based society. Indira's reign during Emer...
