The Upside-down Tree
India's Changing CultureeBook - 2009
When he called India a"functioning anarchy, " economist Kenneth Galbraith may have been thinking about Uttar Pradesh (UP), in northern India. Some Indians laughingly refer to Uttar Pradesh as a"loser state." Known as a home of deep poverty, incurable corruption and sticky social problems, UP is not the India that now appears regularly in The New York Times and Newsweek. This is the "other" India; the one that modernity has largely left behind, and this book is the result of Rick Connerney's repeated residencies over the last 18 years in that state.
