The End of Karma: Hope and Fury Among India’s Young
By Somini Sengupta
The End of Karma explores contemporary India in a time of transition and turmoil as its youth make new demands for equality of opportunity, dignity for girls, and civil liberties. New York Times foreign correspondent Somini Sengupta weaves together the true stories of young people from throughout the country—including a woman who becomes a Maoist rebel; the son of a rickshaw driver who defies odds for a college education; and a woman who opposes her family and hopes to become a police officer. They provide vibrant examples of a powerful movement that’s pushing the country to break free of its past.
