This book breaks fresh ground in exploring V.S. Naipaul's Indian Trilogy. Craving to know more and more about India--the land of his ancestors--Naipaul, like a student, takes up three travels to India in three consecutive decades. Naipaul has never been very comfortable with the received understanding of India because he has understood since his childhood that there operates a huge sense of contradiction between the India of his imagination and the real India as a country. During the span of three decades, Naipaul takes up a search for the correct perspective against which he will be able to understand India. During these decades, Naipaul matures and mellows down as he gets closer to the noblest and the most ignoble elements operating within the spirit of India. This strange dichotomy on the one hand projects a country of outstanding greatness, and on the other, reveals the dark destructive sense of evil, an area of darkness, which tries to undo this greatness inflicting innumerable wounds. Yet, India (Naipaul seems to locate a narrative of resilience) to regain its great heights, takes recourse to million mutinies which seem brewing up, something which Naipaul in a very far-sighted manner has documented in his third book India: A Million Mutinies Now Printed Pages: 168
