Anand Giridharadas is the writer of the Currents column for the International Tribune and The New York Times. Born in Cleveland, Ohio, Giridharadas is a first generation American who, when growing up, had no interest in his parents' homeland of India. He decided to move to India and in this interview he speaks about his book India Calling: An Intimate Portrait of a Nation's Remaking.
Well-spoken and provocative in terms of how he speaks about the process of change, Giridharads is thoughtful and compelling. I think this book would be of interest to anyone interested in personal narratives telling a larger tale of national change.
