Inhaling the Mahatma
WITHIN THE PAGES OF this book, there are assassinations, hijackings, nuclear explosions and passionate romance—but it’s not the latest international thriller, it’s all fact. In the 1990s Christopher Kremmer was a young reporter in India, fascinated by its ancient and complex structure. He returned in 2004 to find a country in the midst of the most dramatic change. From inside the ruling elite of the legendary Gandhi dynasty, to the lowest caste members, Kremmer reveals the remarkable and sometimes violent transformation sweeping the country.
