Three Readings

We have previously condoled the passing of P.V. Narasimha Rao. Indian Express has now carried the transcript of a recent interview with the great man. Absolutely fascinating.

For another complex view of Mr. Rao, read M J Akbar's The lonely masks of Narasimha Rao .

The last reading we recommend is of a very significant new book, Governance -- this is perhaps the most important book on India we've read in a long time. We are not political allies of the author, Arun Shourie, nevertheless consider his book as essential reading for anyone interested in Indian policy and administrative issues.
