A Time for India
"India is a land of contrasts. It is a place where the past meets the future in its extremes, and where this mixture touches every facet of life." In a fascinating and often amusing account of Americans abroad in an exotic--and somewhat chaotic--land, "A Time for India" is a lovingly told story of one family's life and experiences in India from 1996 to 1998, when India's modern industrial revolution was near its beginning. The 2nd edition provides a timeless addition to the book with a story of change. Since 1998, Ellens has returned to India more than 80 times, watching, with an outsider's view, the country transform in ways that seemed impossible not so long ago. The 2nd edition tells the rest of the story.
