    Thanks for your feedback!

    one of the best books read, very realistic and fascinating - a must read to get the insight of India and into the lives and behind the scene of the most wealthy, famous and the under privileged on their struggle to survive - very well written - Suketu Mehta has a flair for writing and makes the book very interesting and hard to put it down.
