Teaser Tuesdays - October 20


Grab your current read and let it fall open to a random page. Post two (or more) sentences from that page, along with the title and author. Don’t give anything vital away!

I'm now reading: 'India: From Midnight to the Millennium' by Shashi Tharoor



" How can one portray the present, let alone the future, of an ageless civilization that was the birthplace of four major religions, a dozen different traditions of classical dance, eight-five political parties, and three hundred ways of cooking the potato? The short answer is that it can't be done - at least not to everyone's satisfaction. "(Page 8)

119 pages into the book, I'm so impressed by the writing and the brilliant, optimistic, yet honest perspective that Shashi Tharoor offers. Its always exciting to find and read an author whose thoughts and opinions are so close to your own. Reading this book makes me even happier that the author, Tharoor, is part of the Union Cabinet.
