    1 thought on “Inhaling the Mahatma”

    1. Insightful and personal account of years as a journalist in India, then a revisiting to research and bathe in the Ganges - not my favourite image from this book. Enlightening to a person unfamiliar with India and I enjoyed the political and personal analysis of a complex and rapidly evolving country.Kremmer writes well and the research impressive but the thing I enjoyed most was his descriptions of people and living with his inlaws in Delhi.

    2. Excellent depiction of indian culture with deep insight into india ' s modern and ancient political, cultural, philosophical history narrated by an outsider (australian). this very engrossing piece of writing is a mix of travelogue, personal story and journalist's report diaryChristopher believes that India ' s IT boom has buried it's image as a timeless, caste - ridden place teeming with paupers, snake charmers and maharajahs. The world is doing yoga, wearing pashmina and reading indian authors [...]

    3. This book has been on my list of books to read even before I actually went to India a couple of years ago. As you will see from my reading habits (once I get a few more books on my shelves of course!) I don't read much non-fiction. This book has been an exception, part travelogue, part reportage, part personal story it is well balanced and interesting. Kremmer is an foreign correspondent for the ABC and like others from that profession (I'm reminded of Eric Campell's Absurdistan) writes so engag [...]

    4. Very engrossing read. It was interesting to see the historical conflicts between Hindus and Muslims play out within the modern context. The complexity and fine-ness that colours India is well depicted in this book. Definitely a relaxing and good read.

    5. I wanted to like this book - a journalists non-fiction account of modern day India. While there are some interesting pieces buried within the book, the narrative is often just a tedious rehash of earlier work without a coherent link, theme or premise.

    6. I really enjoyed this book and its insight into India and its structure.Read the full review at OurBookClub

    7. Another great book from Christopher Kremmer. A travel story from an established journalist. It is both a history lesson and a personal journey of discovery.

    8. Such a clever title literal & philosophical at once, but you must read the passage the spawned the title to truly appreciate its cleverness.
