What I'm reading
Some great books if you're interested in the same things I'm interested in:
The Srinagar Conspiracy: A fast-paced thriller set in Kashmir, written by veteran NDTV journalist, Vikram Chandra. Not only is the plotline extremely gripping, but the story comes to life with Chandra's (obviously first-hand) descriptions of the scenes in Srinagar in the book. He also successfully gets you inside the mind of a terrorist - and makes the nuanced distinction between the home-grown kind (Kashmiri) and the hard-core (typically foreign) jihadi. You can buy it on Flipkart here.
War and Peace in Modern India: This academic work of the foreign policy challenges during Nehru's time is a great read, if you're interested in how the roots of some of our current problems (Kashmir, for example) were sown. Srinath Raghavan is a highly well-read academic, but still makes the crises of the newly born Indian nation come to life. Click here to buy it on Flipkart.
