‘When The Moon Shines By Day is a perturbing wake-up call of India’s transformation – “In 1975, we had a clear dictatorship. Today’s situation is worse because we’re under the guise of a democracy but the travesties are far worse – mob lynchings, murders in view of the police.’ Author Nayantara Sahgal discusses When the Moon Shines by Day with Githa Hariharan on Facebook.

‘The book is action packed, funny, and spirited in its journey through the crossroads of Northeast, where people and their cultures interact outside mainland India’s worldview. Travel has different meaning for everyone; Anil Yadav’s memoir is a refreshing look at travel and writing as a journey to embracing a world different from your own, but at the same time recognizing that difference requires courage and compassion.’ Book review of Is That Even a Country, Sir! by Anil Yadav, translated from the Hindi by Anurag Basnet.
