    Description

    No Full Stops in India presents essays written by Mark Tully about beautiful places, human realities and issues that are a looming threat to the idea of India, based on the wisdom of an ancient civilization.

    Summary of the Book

    Through several unrelated stories, No Full Stops in India brings out the deep insights of the author about a land with indigenous traditions and wisdom. Tully writes about Calcutta, the Kumbh Mela, the effect of televising a great Hindu epic, Deorala sati, and the less-known stories of Jangarh Singh and Ram Chander among other things. The book tries to describe the vitality of the real India and the fine texture of Indianness through the zealous stories.

    Sharp , straight and clear.

    The book talks very clearly about the most boldest yet the most severely neglected problems of the country. Poverty being the central idea, the author does not hesitate even a bit in pointing out faux pas of the self-centered attitude of the elite, the government and the youth of the country. He laments the negligent outlook of the countrymen towards the poor and deprived.
    The book , strong in its virtue , is very moving and stimulating. Its confident approach towards the poverty of the cou...

    On my top priority to suggest to my friends.

    It presents a better view of India. It explains the 'cause - action - result' sequence of some of the important events / functionaries in a very clear and broader outlook. He presents 'what Indian / hindusthani is...?' and 'what India wanted...?' Very good book. Read a sample, I am sure, you will read full.

    A fun read

    Written by the last man standing in the line of Burra Sahebs, ‘Sir Mark Tully’s’ “No Full Stops in India” is a collection of 10 essays on his view of India.

    As an English man born in India and the head of BBC for several years, he offers a unique perspective on both the political and social set-up experienced in his time.
