   schema:reviewBody ""Pramila Jayapal, an Indian-born, western-educated woman, takes the reader with her on a journey of discovery as she returns to India and explores the complex issues of progress and developments." "Jayapal spends two years immersing herself in the life of her native land, living in smaller cities and villages. Travelling from Kerala to Ladakh to the holy city of Varanasi on the Ganges River, she witnesses firsthand a society struggling to reconcile tradition with modernity and eventually confronts what both delights and frustrates her in her country of origin. In doing so, she begins to understand the profound lessons that Indian culture and society have to offer, lessons with the power to enlighten and enrich our way of living in today's rapidly changing world."--Jacket." ;
