Editorial Reviews

Review


"Victor is one of those rare foreign journalists who not only likes and understands India but, in addition, has the capacity to see its faults as well as impartially assess the efforts it's making to correct them. This means his coverage of India is always informed and thought-provoking. Even when sympathetic he's never biased. I, therefore, implicitly trust his views and I have always learnt a lot from his writing."--Karan Thapar, journalist, television commentator and interviewer


"To try and fathom the wonders and follies of India through a river is grand ambitionand Victor Mallet pulls it off!"--Gurcharan Das, author of India Unbound and The Difficulty of Being Good


"An extraordinary and fascinating combination of history, geography, environment, politics, religion, and much more. Written with affection for and understanding of a country of special importance. This is a river of unsurpassed significance on the world stage, whose flow and life is traced from the Himalayas to the Sunderbans and the Bay of Bengal. Not just the story of an often difficult past but also of hope for a possible healthy and attractive future."--Nicholas Stern, IG Patel Professor of Economics and Government at LSE
