One of the world's most ancient cultures, India can be understood and explained in as many ways as humans can possibly devise. To make sense of its astonishing turmoil of ideas, Sunil Khilnani takes the lives of 50 Indians - some very famous, some more obscure - from the earliest records to the present day, and in a series of short chapters describes what makes them so surprising, curious or important. These are not simply history lessons, but stories rooted in today's India, as Khilnani goes on a quest across contemporary India to find the living traces of these extraordinary individuals.
