A classical epic chronicling the love of Shakuntala and Dushyanta, the silent crusade of the Mahatma who, when encountered by French custom officials, had little of value to declare including his “Reputation”, the defiance of Bal Gangadhar Tilak who brought the Ganapati Puja out onto the streets and a man called J.R.D. Tata who flew a single engine, de Havilland Puss Moth from Karachi to Bombay with regular load of mail. This and several other facts make up this book which showcases the wonder that is India or Bhara, written by one of India’s foremost journalists, B.G. Verghese, this book takes a hitherto unknown look at India’s ancient heritage, its diverse people and faiths, wandering minstrels, travelers and philosophers. In addition to unfolding the country’s glorious history, this book also focuses on what is integral to modern and post-Independent India, the framing of the Constitution, the building of institutions, formulation of policies and forewarns us of all the ills that ail an overburdened nation. Juxtaposing each landmark event, are rare postage stamps, colorful, unique and beautiful, which not only served as messengers, connecting the remotest places and people in the glorious tradition of Indian Postal service but also as markers of its history. Post Haste: Quintessential India is a definitive account of India which is uniquely retold here as a reminder of its greatness.
