An essential traveller's companion This is an unusual collection of travel pieces by writers ranging from M.J. Akbar and Aman Nath to Devdutt Pattanaik, Jerry Pinto, Rahul Pandita and Advaita Kala.Featured here are essays on the changing face of the popular hill resort-Nainital, living as a Pakistani in the remote city of Copenhagen, a woman traveller being strip-searched at an American airport and traversing the dark interiors of the haunted Bhangarh Fort in Rajasthan, among others. Focusing on the Indian experience, the book captures a country of shifting landscapes - physical, cultural, psychological. A departure from the traditional travel narrative, this is a unique collection for the travel-book buff.
We travel all the time, from place to place, thought to thought. There are yet other journeys that we would like to make but are unable to, that exist powerfully in the mind, day after day, month after month. Until Jehangir Bejan Tata died in San Francisco in 2013, he had been making one such journey for the last sixty-odd years when he was back in Shanghai, admiring the clean art deco lines of a home he left in 1952 but which had never left his mind. Bir Bahadur Singh, haunted by a similar longing, who left Pakistan during Partition, could actually make the journey back, fifty-four years later, to pick up the connections from that long past time. In Travelling In, Travelling Out: A Book of Unexpected Journeys eminent writer Namita Gokhale puts together an eclectic collection of twentyfive stories that take the reader on a journey that is surprising, moving and, sometimes, mischievous. From Advaita Kala's piece on her reaction to an intrusive security pat-down to finding one's identity as an immigrant in Amsterdam in an essay by Ali Sethi, there is a wide range of experiences to choose from. With contributors like M.J. Akbar, Rahul Pandita, Dayanita Singh, Urvashi Butalia and others among the guides, the reader can expect an unusual journey, one without the fear, moreover, of getting lost.
