Re: Book suggestions needed (Indian Authors)

Take a pick from my reads over a long time

1 River Sutra by Gita Mehta (NRI daughter of Biju Pattanaik). It is a collection of stories on Narmada like one fast car loving playboy turning into a Jain Monk

2. India Unbound by Gurcharan Das, a critique on the licence permit raj with some suggestions on developing India

3 Autobiography of Khushwant Singh (forgot its name). Sexual escapades of KS plus his ringside view of Indian History

4. "India in slow motion" by Mark tully (He is as good as an Indian). Another ringside view of India

5. Saucy near porn by Shobha De - Starry Nights or Sisters.


There is also a lot else i have not read.
Top of the mind that comes is 'Raag Darbari' (google for the author). There is also 'No full stops in India' by Mark tully
