    Walking the Indian Streets is an account of the author's return to India after ten years of study in England and America The year is 1959 and the author sets forth to rediscover India with his friend the poet Dom Moraes The setting is unmistakably upper class and we are whisked straight into Delhi's party scene and the regular circle of expatriates journalists and politicians But amidst the lunch appointments with Khushwant Singh and the evenings spent at Gymkhana Club the author interviews a string of dignitaries and makes many high profile visits to continue his political education It is followed by their stay at a General's palace in Kathmandu and a rather disappointing visit to Calcutta both of which make for an interesting readHowever in between these humorous and some outright ludicrous situations there are to be found some pensive moments of pure brilliance as the author reflects upon the India that is unraveling before him The India that has still not come to grips with its reality The India which is still divided between Hindu and Muslim between Aryans and Dravidians between the old and the new After reading this autobiographical sketch part journal part essay I have come to regard Ved Mehta as one of the most underrated authors of our time PS I chanced upon a really old copy a 1975 edition which features a striking photograph by Jehangir Gazdar on the cover

    An amazing read especially for the nostalgia lovers or those who want to know what the party scene was back in late 50s in Delhi and other parts of India 'Tiny' part about Khushwant Singh is enchanting but its the final meeting with Nehru that drops the cherry on the cake
