Give 'em Hell, Hari
The war of Indian independence may have ended in 1947, but for a group of Indian journalists in an American news bureau in Delhi, it is still far from over forty-five years later. Only Hari Rana, aspiring reporter and unstoppable writer of letters on diverse subjects and head of communications can bridge the gap beween East and West. It's a mission that sends him to the heart of enemy territory: to the United States itself. What he finds there sends him home a very changed man. What you get when you cross Candide with The Henry Root Letters, Give 'Em Hell Hari reminds us that a talented writer can mix politics and comedy and still stay miles ahead of the game.
