Set in India of the 21st century, this book titled Musings, is a collection of essays about Indian society, its trends, its fashion, its movies, its icons and above all its common people.People who make what India is today.A society of grave complexities, of enormous wealth, both human and material, of utter poverty and hopelessness on the other hand.A land of faith and of darkness, of great intellectual progress and of superstitions!A land of entrepreneurial skill, of great success stories, and wisdom and spirituality.Of sages and seers, Mahatmas and conmen!And its biggest export to the west, Bollywood.With the Indian diaspora spread all over the world, chicken tikka masala, henna and the song and dance numbers have truly gone global.India has the world dancing to its tunes and quite literally!India is slated to have the maximum number of English speaking populace by 2020, and given by the pace at which blogging has caught on, its no surprise, that book this should include entries from the author's blog.The internert gives wide exposure to views and news around the globe, and a blog writer is truly a world netizien.Last but not the least, poetry which rocks the heart and pulls at the strings and will make u sigh.Potery which talks about longing, lost love, about a sense of displacement and isolation, of human relationships and much more!
