Reading a non-fiction book can be a task sometimes & I think many of us struggle to complete them but I’ve found that it totally depends on the topic & the writing style. Luckily enough the author in this book have picked up a topic which is truly interesting, it has been written in detail with proper citations which make it easier for anyone to crosscheck the information. This book is truly a piece of art which quite informatively written but not to alienate the masses but to generate a sense of curiosity & I think that’s the most important thing to do. The language used is extremely easy, both the title & cover is apt. The only small critique I have is the pace but that could be only me. Honestly, I loved this book & would recommend to everyone.
He also descibes how The great indian migration of around 2 million Indians where migrated in the mid 80s to early 1920 moved to Carribean & places like Mauritius. More detailed about various communites like Sindhis in India & south indians like Brahmins opening restaurants in all india.
The migratory traits of Indian communities thus enables India exert a totally different level of soft power which China is trying to create artificially through debt investments in the underdeveloped world.
