    This "remarkable new book" (The Observer) is an exploration of the new India through the lens of young people from different worlds: a woman who becomes a Maoist rebel; a brother charged for the murder of his sister who had married the "wrong" man; and a woman who opposes her family and hopes to become a police officer. They are making new demands on India's democracy for equality of opportunity, dignity for girls and civil liberties. Somini Sengupta spotlights these stories of ordinary people, weaving together a portrait of a country in turmoil.
