Book Description

In the run-up to the 15th Loksabha elections in 2009, the Hindustan Times decided to take its readers up close to grassroots India, and to share the lives and perspective of ordinary Indians – the people who really matter in an election. India Yatra was probably the biggest national reporting project of its kind. It spanned more than 23,000 kilometers and 117 constituencies – around one-fifth of all Loksabha constituencies. Fifty-six reporters and the same number of photographers were sent out on selected routes to explore different themes and convey the concerns that occupy the people. The exercise showed just how diverse India really is, and how startling its variety. So that, as Nandan Nilekani points out in his foreword, anyone who claims to know India is either lying or foolish.These reports present a picture of the country with remarkable clarity, without getting lost in the maze of its complexity. As India negotiates this critical period of rising awareness and an intensifying struggle for access to the benefits of growth, India Yatra assumes a significance that goes beyond the immediate reality.
