Gita Mehta brings modern India to life in a series of essays about the economy, politics and history. As parts of India reach toward the first world, Mehta describes how the caste system is slowly disappearing, poor people are working their way out of debt, and all the people are working toward a democracy. An Oxford-educated writer and reporter, Mehta presents a well-rounded picture of the multitude of cultures, civilizations and attitudes represented by the various areas in India. SNAKES AND LADDERS engrosses the listener, peeling away the veils of myth and presenting an in-depth, educated picture of this important world culture.
