Mark Tully, the former BBC bureau chief in Delhi, creates a colorful portrait of life in the state of Uttar Predesh, the "heart of India." Listeners hear stories about the problems of village life, such as having a reputation for being a barren wife, arranging a revenge killing, coping with a lazy husband, new attitudes about marriage, and religious festivals. These stories describe in personal terms a people being pushed headlong into the modern world. These are Mark Tully's own stories, and he reads them with authority and compassion. These stories help a Westerner better understand the unique atmosphere and vibrant culture of village India. D.L.G. (c)AudioFile, Portland, Maine

Book Description Penguin Books India, 2000. Softcover. Condition: New. Stories of depth and eloquence that take us to the very heart of the Indian experience For more than twenty years Mark Tully was the BBC Chief of Bureau in Delhi and his name and his voice became synonymous with the country he had made his home. For years he sent back dispatches interpreting the subcontinent to the outside world, but the `truth` of India is remarkably resistant to reportage. Imbued with his love for India and informed by his vast experience, Mark Tully has woven together a series of extraordinary stories. All the stories are set in Uttar Pradesh and tell of very different lives. Of a barren wife who visits a holy man and subsequently conceives?but is it a miracle or something more worldly? Of a son`s carefully laid plot to take revenge against his father`s murderer, with a surprising twist when his case comes to court. Of a daughter, persuaded by her friends to spurn an arranged marriage, whose romance ends in blackmail. Of a man`s inability to overcome the conventions of caste and go into business, which leads to his wife breaking purdah and taking control of the family. In these and in other stories, Mark Tully delicately probes the nuances of life in India. Printed Pages: 256. Seller Inventory # 22446
