For all of India’s myths, tales and ethical epics, Indian historical past continues to be a interestingly unpeopled position. In Incarnations, Sunil Khilnani fills that house, recapturing the human measurement of ways the world’s greatest democracy got here to be. His trenchant pics of emperors, warriors, philosophers, movie stars and company titans—some recognized, a few unjustly forgotten—bring feeling, wry humour and unusual perception to dilemmas that stretch from precedent days to our own.
