“ How often have we come across the ‘it’s okay’ attitude in our daily lives? An attitude hinting at helplessness,
an age old feeling that has got entwined with our DNA now,
a feeling of déjà vu, an exasperation of sorts,
a frustration that we have almost chosen to forget,
even though it hurts us deep inside.
We seem to be fine with almost anything and everything. ”
In a no-holds-barred ‘India – My Heavenly Abode’, a riveting work of non-fiction replete with anecdotes and thought-provoking one-liners, Anshuman Gupta tries to analyse what ails contemporary India. Out of a long list, he hand-picks 16 areas of concern affecting all of us and suggests plausible solutions. In an elegant yet lucid language, he lays bare the hard-hitting reality of some pertinent problems plaguing our motherland and questions why we can’t change, if we have to develop.
