Review

A must read to understand how modern India functions, the widening divide of have's and have not's; how the big fish get away with what they want and how as a society we have taken the swindle for granted and has become part of our daily lives. --By Dinakar on 30 July 2016

A Feast of Vultures is a lone warrior; as it unravels the facts, heads will roll. Every corrupt Indian should be afraid of this book, so should every public servant and politician. This non-fictional work is all heart there is an emotional tug to the facts written in superb prose. The author, courageous at once, doesn t mince his words and criticizes the unruly system with an unparalleled sensitivity and tenderness, which is the hallmark of true journalism. It is not lost on us that Josy loves his nation as much as we all do and his singular fight is decorated with this compassion as he reveals the muck behind the concept of a Rising India. He fights with the armour of best intent, for all of us, and the book sets out to examine the ills of a contemporary India that deprives the common man of his rights while serving as a sanctuary to the richest as they further their exploitative agenda, abetted by a bargaining political class. Many of the facts will stun us, shaking us from the hoodwinking stupor of a generous economy that has everything for someone willing to bend the rules. While our nation survives on a streak of jingoism, creating fictional external foes, the book redirects our view to the true reality India s enemies are within. --By A Customer on 6 August 2016

A dazzling piece of non-fiction, A Feast of Vultures lays bare the problems that confound India. India s best-known investigative reporter, Josy Joseph, writes with moral conviction, yet never denigrates to pontification as he piles up evidence of corruption in high places. The truth is conveyed through a searing prose an alarm for the citizens to wake up and take notice. Corruption is everywhere, more so in India with the aid of the ubiquitous middleman , and the book exposes the morass at the heart of the world s biggest democracy. While the rich get richer, and the poor continue to beg for their inalienable rights, the book displays immense courage in exposing the offenders, who are abetted by India s political class for a price. While it criticizes the decaying system with impunity, the passion to see a resurgent India - minus its ills - is evident throughout the book. One of the stories is about an airline tycoon, who s daylight murder in the 90 s was shabbily investigated and hushed up to abet the rise of a leading rival airline today. The book is a reminder to us, not to look away, but to take notice of what can kill the very idea of India as a nation --By Soni S on 9 August 2016
