This book tells the tale of 2 very boring people, who have followed every step in the lifecycle graph that Indian parents unfailingly make on a child’s birth. Ujwala & Pranav believe in stability and job security, in seeking comfort and luxury, in the merits of regular savings and investment...Yet, they chose to kick it all to explore India for 1 year on a self-drive road-trip through 20 Indian states (and Bhutan as a bonus) and in the process, scratch the surface of “What is India?” and “Who is an Indian?”. The book documents their experiences as they explore India’s rich architectural heritage, feast on local foods, experience village life, and reflect and introspect on everything from politics and history to development, infrastructure and cultural practices. Follow them to offbeat palaces in Rajasthan, to vibrant tribal markets in Chhattisgarh and to obscure temples in West Bengal. Drive with them through the icy passes of Bhutan as they meet long-lost friends. Walk along with them through the Kumbh Mela at Allahabad and the Aoleang harvest festival in Nagaland and sail with them through the mighty Brahmaputra in Assam. And most of all, see India unfiltered and be inspired to start your own journey.
