Discovering India

 
Karolina Goswami (Author)
Synopsis

"A young Polish woman embarks on a tour of India and falls in love with the country. What does she find? She finds that India is quite different from the way it is commonly perceived outside its borders. Isn’t it reckless to restrict India to common media stereotypes like cow, caste, rapes and slums without carefully examining and studying its lesser-known sides and its complex and delicate layers of reality? In an increasingly globalised and a data-driven world, isn’t it more sensible to have a broader evidence-based global perspective instead of jumping to reckless and oversimplified conclusions? Without neglecting India’s lesser-understood sides, from its economy to the environment, from its weaknesses to its strengths, from its spirituality to its unutilised soft power, as well as its culture, tourism and its upcoming challenges, Karolina Goswami has carefully attempted to diagnose India’s problems and seek their solutions. With the help of verifiable data, researches and logic, Karolina’s story of India may sound scholarly but can be easily grasped. Discovering India, therefore, is a handy, quick-glance reference source of information on India, for an insider as well as an outsider, for an average Indian who must know about India’s strengths and shortcomings, for the Indian diaspora who would like to keep themselves abreast, and for non-Indians who want to dig India deeper, beneath its stereotyped surface. It is a book that should be in the hands of everyone interested in India. "
