‘This is a story about India. My India. It is a very personal story. You see, I’m exactly as old as India is.’
It all began when, viewing the breathless preparations for independent India’s 60th birthday celebrations--and poised then on her own sixth decade—Shobhaa Dé was struck by the thought: ‘Surely my life has taken the same trajectory as the country’s?’ In an intimate confession to her readers, she answers that question, and many more: Does India really deserve to congratulate itself? Has it lived up to the early promises it made to its people? Does the author believe in India herself?
In Superstar India, an intimate confession to her readers, De answers these questions and discovers a jawan-young-India, ready to find its place in today's world. Discussion everything from Mayawati's success, the global economic recession and terrorism to the Rakhi Sawant phenomenon, she debunks many accepted conclusions about her country with humorous argumentativeness- to finally convince us that India is already a superstar.
Witty, passionate and gloriously opinionated, Superstar India celebrates the spirit of a nation that is certainly not about to lost its glow.
