It is the year 2015 AD. A veteran Indian foreign correspondent on his last assignment reports from Yangon where India is successful in running the military junta out of Myanmar. Having been present at the major cross roads of modern Indian history, his dispatches span the exciting progress of India from an insecure, hesitant regional power to a world class state, an India that extends from the Indus to the Irrawaddy.
The story of India’s climb into the first circle as culled from his diary and newspaper archieves is full of unexpected twists and turns, military, political and social. And what makes the reader pause to wonder why not? is that each of these events is well within the realms of possibility.
A novel that will be seen to be prescient in the days ahead, it is a must-read for all those interested not only in India as a country but also in the every concept of India.
