India: A Tryst with Destiny: Discourses on a Burgeoning Democracy (Told Like Never Before)

David William Martin (Author)
Synopsis Manu authors have 'tried their hand' on vast complex and enigmatic India. It is an enormous subject defying the efforts of most to describe and /or explain it's tremendous diversity, lovingly and effectively, as the country and its colourful talented, but so modest people deserve. Better to tell it 'as it is' and allow one's readers to make their own judgements. Disdaining all prejudice and idiosyncratic and sensational factors which have dominated nearly all depictions to date, the author, David William Martin, reveals the marvellous quite thrillingly interesting India he has personally known and experienced through nearly half a century, upto the present time. Instead of merely telling India to the rest of the world, "India a tryst with destiny" brings the rest of the world to India, deliberately and tellingly, also brings the rest of the world allowing better comparison and understanding for everyone and dispelling so much of the myth and wrong comprehension that has disappointing blurred the true situation that factually prevails as all of us begin the twenty first century, wherever we live in the world. A prodigious even amazing amalgam of many different people, speaking many languages and embracing many religions and different beliefs, and living in hugely diverse regional conditions within the sub-continent, over one billion Indians living and working harmoniously and tolerantly together, present a wonderful and unique example to the world. It is this unique example deeply evident from his first days of residence (in Calcutta) that captures of 'never afterwards to be relinquished' fervour and admiration and unstinting affection of the author. Echoing the deeply held conviction of America's eminent literary critic, Alfred Kazin, the author of "India a tryst with destiny" so too believes that 'the ready conveyance of deeply held principles and feelings from the book to the reader, is the kernel of all writing and what really counts'. To have achieved such communication is the true goal and purpose of this book.
