      Why is there a shipping charge for this item?

      Sellers with Flipkart Assured waive off the delivery charge for Orders over Rs 500. For Orders under Rs 500, a nominal delivery charge is added per item.

      What is the estimated delivery time?

      Sellers generally procure and ship the items within the time specified on the product page. Business days exclude public holidays and Sundays.

      Estimated delivery time depends on the following factors:

      Why does the delivery date not correspond to the delivery timeline of X-Y business days?

      It is possible that the Seller or our courier partners observe a holiday between the day you placed your order and the date of delivery, which is based on the timelines shown on the product page. In this case, we add a day to the estimated date. Some courier partners and Sellers do not work on Sundays and this is factored in to the delivery dates.

    In this lively, informative and insightful book, Shashi Tharoor brilliantly demonstrates how Indian diplomacy has come of age and forecasts where it will need to focus in the new millennium. He surveys Indias major international relationships in detail, evokes the countrys soft power and offers his thoughts on a new grand strategy for the nation, arguing that India must move beyond non-alignment to multi-alignment. Stimulating, reflective, elegantly written and passionately engaged, Pax Indica is another substantial achievement from one of the finest Indian authors of our times.

    Journey through India's fiscal as well as foreign relations.

    The book is fascinating and one cannot think to put it down, once started. Shashi Tharror takes us on an arduous journey, comprehensively explaining each theme. The book is exceptional in its own way, and that's not a surprise as the writer is no one else than under secretary-general of United Nations. Hats off to Mr. Tharoor !

    The policy making is beyond our under standing and that is one reason why we crib about so many things that the nation does. This book is an insightful account into the compulsions behind policy making, the challenges faced by policy makers.

    Its not a book on foreign policy

    i was looking for a book on foreign policy. its a nice book but it does not help when you want to know about policy making. its just an opinion book by an ex-diplomat. but its filled with knowledge, information and interpretations.
