Understanding India - Title Page

E.M. Forster published A Passage to India in 1924.

Set in a fictitious Indian city, his characters in the novel express their ardent desire to see and experience the real India and meet the locals. Forster concludes in his timeless novel that there is
no ?real India? but rather a complex multitude of different Indias.

On Understanding India, we embark on a journey of exploration to uncover today’s India. We take this passage to India with 4 curious souls who live and breath India in both their professional and personal lives. We find ourselves in great company as we march forth with a British-born essayist and novelist of Indian origin, a respected historian, an inquisitive sociologist and a young politician. Let the adventure begin!
