Post Haste: Quintessential India

B.G. Verghese (Author)

Written by one of India’s leading journalist, B. G. Verghese, the work takes a kaleidoscopic look at the rich socio-cultural heritage of India and its history. It throws light on the diverse faiths here, the wandering minstrels and travellers and philosophers, the epics and legends that chronicle love tales and heroic deeds. The focus is on the features of 'incredible India': the little known people, events and places that are interesting and informative. Collecting things one never learnt at school but which whet one’s appetite to know more about India’s past ad society and culture, the work also takes critical note of the many ills and contradictions of India, its democracy, its freedom struggle and Constitution and the building of institutions.
