    Overview

    In 1975, on the peak of Indira Gandhi’s “Emergency,” V. S. Naipaul back to India, the rustic his ancestors had left 100 years previous. Out of that trip he produced this concise masterpiece: a colourful, defiantly unsentimental portrait of a society traumatized by way of centuries of international conquest and immured in a mythic imaginative and prescient of its past.

    Drawing on novels, information stories, political memoirs, and his personal encounters with traditional Indians–from a supercilious prince to an engineer developing housing for Bombay’s homeless–Naipaul captures an enormous, mysterious, and agonized continent inaccessible to foreigners and infrequently seen to its personal humans. He sees either the burgeoning house software and the 5,000 volunteers chanting mantras to purify a defiled temple; the feudal village autocrat and the Naxalite revolutionaries who mixed Maoist rhetoric with ritual homicide. Relentless in its imaginative and prescient, exciting within the keenness of its prose, India: A Wounded Civilization is a piece of magnificent perception and candor.
