Years after Jawaharlal Nehru’s historic ‘Tryst with destiny’ speech, in Indian cities and villages millions survive on less than the bare minimum. Children are not in classrooms, women have nowhere safe to relieve themselves, and jobless men lie around in a daze. In cities, where initiative should flourish, a merciless state looms large over every common endeavour. The civilization that was India, that grand culture, has not found utterance again. Long years after freedom from the British, why do we remain suppressed? In India’s Broken Tryst, bestselling author and popular political columnist Tavleen Singh chronicles the damage done. She catalogues in bold, eviscerating detail the systematic unmaking of our sense of destiny.

    I was very eager to read it having already read Durbar. However to my disappointment, its not as good as Durbar. Tavleen focuses too much on realities of India like poverty which made me think that perhaps she has written this book on India’s Elites than anyone else. While she was generous about Sonia Gandhi in her book Durbar, here she has mentioned how vicious Sonia can get from forcing tax raids on her to asking Indian Express to fire her. She also blows the lid of Indian media and exposes how some of the most notable journalists in India where nothing more than cheerleaders of Sonia Gandhi.
