The result of a decade of travels through the Indian subcontinent, the Age of Kali is a collection of essays ranging in scope from the widows of Vrindavan to rap stars in Bombay, the temples as old as the Parthenon in Madurai, the socialite author Shobhaa De, the remnants of the kingdom of Avadh, and meetings with then Prime Minister Benazir Bhutto and Imran Khan. Stylish, witty and bristling with insight, these jewel-like essays string together to create a captivating and enduringly relevant portrait of the subcontinent.
