Book Review: The Heart of India, by Mark Tully, ***

Imbued with his love for India, and informed by his experience of India (where he worked for the BBC for over 20 years), Mark Tully has woven together a series of stories set in Uttar Pradesh, which tell of very different lives.

Half a dozen stories from the heartland of India. People's stories, everyday men and women who make the bulk of India's billion+ nation. The stories are uneven in interest and excitement, and are not really integrated into one coherent whole. However, they do provide some insight into changing India in the 1980s.
