India Unlimited – Stories from a Nation Caught Between Hype and Hope – Kulpreet Yadav
The Indian phenomenon is capturing everyone’s attention from businessmen to Hollywood stars. But how real is the Indian story on the ground? India Unlimited is an attempt to lay bare the lives of people and their surroundings that define an ambivalent India trapped between hype and hope.
Written over the last decade, these stories are set in villages, towns and metro cities of a country under overhaul. It’s an attempt to depict pain, pleasures and prejudices of everyday Indians as they adjust to the change that fate has thrust upon them. Inspired by real life incidents this collection slides through various themes like appalling lives of street children, new perceptions about love and sex, urban disorder, influence of western values, depraved spiritual gurus etc.
