Summary Providing a look at India that is humorous, unvarnished, and unsentimental, this travel narrative takes readers on a rollicking journey of personal discovery across the Indian subcontinent. A travelogue of journalist Aaron Smith's time in India-witnessing the tragic death of a friend, dodging terrorist attacks, getting caught in a revolution, and befriending a colorful cast of characters-it explores the inherent contradictions of India in a fast pace that allows the reader to explore the grittier side of India and revel in its swirling madness.
