Overview: Around India in 80 Trains

Written by Monisha Rajesh, originally from India but settled abroad, this book is a fascinating read about the culture of Indian trains. Interspersed with wit and humorous accounts, this book takes the readers through the entire country in a journey that would equal the circumference of the Earth. The writer has taken a leaf out of the book of the famous Jules Verne by framing the title to resemble his work- Around the world in 80 days. She has even incorporated some of original Jules Verne character names such as her tag-along photographer.

The second largest provider of employment in the world, the Indian railways have a wide array of trains and the author has taken the reader through all of them. Right from the luxurious trains down to the crowded and stuffy locals, from the toy trains to the hospital on wheels, she has covered it all. On the way, the reader is exposed to various characters as described by the author, the culture and the traditions of all the places that she has visited. All in all, a journey of extraordinary proportions, the author compels the reader to appreciate India like never before.

Monisha Rajesh was born and brought up in the UK with just a brief stint in Madras. She grew up all over England and attended the University of Leeds. She went on to teach English to a High school in Cannes and then attained her Post-Graduate degree in Journalism at the City University in London. She has written for the London Evening Standard, The Guardian, TIME magazine and The New York Times. This paperback makes for an extremely light and interesting read of India in its totality, and is available online with the ISBN-10 number 8174369139 and ISBN-13 number 978-8174369130.
