Indian Airports: Shocking Ground Realities

 
Kishin R. Wadhwaney (Author)
Synopsis Airports are labeled as gateways of countries. They reveal a country’s characteristics in no uncertain terms. India’s international airports do not reveal the vibrance, diversity, cultural and spiritual heritage of the nation. Instead, they show its inhabitants in a poor light despite age-old noble traditions. There is nothing but ‘jungle raj’ obtaining here. They for-warn visitors to stay careful and watchful lest their trips turn out to be nightmares for them. There is corruption all around. Not that corruption does not exist in US, Britain, Canada, Thailand, Singapore and several other places. But here corruption has become a part of the system, which is vicious and is burdened by red-tapism.

Kishin R. Wadhwaney

Born on October 15, 1929 in Hyderabad (Sind), now in Pakistan, Kishin R. Wadhwaney came as a refugee to mumbai in 1948 following the partition of India. He stayed in Mumbai for a year before moving to Lucknow to join his mother and three sisters. The family went through many ups and downs. This forced Kishin, jut our of his teens, to find whatever employment he could manage. Kishin was a kind of rolling stone which gathered moss. He became a sports stringer in the Pioneer in 1955 before becoming a full-fledged sports reporter in the National Herald in 1960. After serving for three years, he moved to Delhi to join the Indian Express. He retired in 1989 after acquiring the position of assistant editor (sports). Since leaving Indian Express, Kishin had several offers but he chose to stay a freelance journalist. As he had done in Indian Express, he continues to excel in airport stories. He contributes regularly in the Tribune, where he writes a weekly column, 'Aviation Notes'. Wadhwaney has been known to possess nose for news. He lies to do 'investigative' work and, in the process, he has filed many sensational stories. No wonder he has produced this book, which should have a ready place on the bookshelves of anyone concerned with civil aviation.
