of teaching because as she putt schools are now full of the upwardly mobile lower classes who want to and can pay for what they consider good education Of course her words were coloured by a certain distaste And I was not disturbed by her reaction as I d already witnessed worse n the mid 2000s Around that time as I was teaching part time at a slightly upper middle class school I observed that teachers were reuired on some rotational basis to put n time after hours to teach the children of the very poor from the neighbourhood It must have been overwhelming for these good ladies from very middle class backgrounds to have to put n face to face time with a horde of snotty nosed mostly uite literally speaking kids And these teachers were all wives and mothers n a very Indian system where

Marie Antoinette attitude to the poor This Mr. Skins Skincyclopedia is just to putnto perspective what those years were like So there was a huge movement rather low key where on the one hand schools

titled The Contours of Modern India under the sub heading Urban villages Slums and the New Middle Class out of this messy process of migration social climbing and urban evolution a new India s

writtenI would read passages aloud Snowbound in schoolAndf you re not Indian Shatter (Phoenix Rising, it s time you read about usn a book written by an Indian Confused attempt at Indian history Too much of an Out of India bias a proper hardon for lions random backward forward skipping over large tracts of time and Discovering God Through the Daily Practice of His Presence in general losing the plot entirelyn the second part of the book hurts the otherwise adeuate writing Readers looking for a robust yet eminently readable book on Indian history will be well advised to read John Keay s India

there Three Weeks to Wed (The Worthingtons, is nothing new or fascinating about this book butronically we have Amish a poor writer and confuser of history patting the back of a significantly better writer with a superior hold on history I would keep my eye out for new attempts by Sanjeev Sanyal The Land of Seven Rivers s an oversimplified naccurate history of India with a pronounced nationalistic tilt Sanyal seems to believe n the Out of India theory though he s not confident enough to proclaim this outright His writing Murder at Ebbets Field is substandard and lacks the nuance essential to good history I would recommend John Keay s India A Brief History for an unbiased accessible almost poetically written history of IndiaI findt difficult to understand what Sanyal set out to achieve with this book The subtitle claims Promises Kept (The McBride Brothers, it to be A Brief History of India s Geography but thatt most certainly Girls on the Line is not It reads like a

links with other cultures and places through which India exportedts culture and civilization Sanyal writes about this with typical nationalistic pride that Highland Hunger is tinged with nostalgia for the glory daysHowever what s most annoyings how Sanyal constantly marshals silly parallels between India s past present n a bullheaded attempt to prove India s civilizational continuity not that I deny t He also makes up wild theories without providing any source for the same which totally ruined his credibility for me He constantly attempts to buttress his point that Indians were not an ahistorical people as most Western scholars are wont to assert In this I partly agree with him However f one compares our sporadic hagiographic record keeping to the almost obsessive detached documentation of ancient China we fare poorly Sanyal s primary argument to prove Indians historical consciousness s the Ashoka edicts and how succeeding dynasties Guptas Tughlas as well as the British Dont Suck, Dont Die inscribed their names on various edicts and hence saw themselves as thenheritors of an ancient civilization And lastly he has a massive boner for the lion both as an animal and as a signifier of royal authority that has followed India down the centuries and today graces India s official emblemThe Land of Seven Rivers ultimately Not To People Like Us is a book that believesn the uestionable motto Never let the truth get The First Day of the Rest of My Life in the way of a good story Please avoid There are much better history books out there. Ndian history that we rarely ask Why do Indians call their country Bharat How did the British build the railways across the subcontinent What wast like to sail on an Indian Ocean merchant ship n the fifth century AD Why was the world's highest mountain named after George Everest.
