Reading books is a very good habit. Reading books that are not supposed to be held sideways, is a better habit. It is best done with your eyes open and sometimes, in cases like this, with your ears open. Mark Tully and Gillian Wright have come to town to read their masterpiece, India In Slow Motion.

It is said about Mark Tully that no foreign commentator has a greater understanding of the passions, the contradictions, the charms and the resilience that constitute India. This book is more on bad governance that has put brakes on progress in India. The authors say the administrative system has not been properly reformed or finely tuned since the British left. It has been drifting along with no serious thought given to governance.

The contents of the book are as follows: Introduction
1. The reinvention of Rama
2. Misplaced charity
3. Corruption from top to tail
4. Altered altars
5. Creating Cyberabad
6. The Sufis and a plain faith
7. Farmer's reward
8. A tale of two brothers
9. The water harvesters
10. Paradise lost

This famous BBC reporter will himself give a brief on the details of the book. A great opportunity to talk about the possible shortcomings of our country. Please contact 2340-0132 / 2339-9042 for further details.
