There is no singular view of a country like India, either from within or from beyond. However, someone like Gautam Bhatia has a better perspective than many, having spent many years abroad, and then returning to his native land.
Michael Shirrefs wandered through the streets of New Delhi to meet Gautam Bhatia, who’s a writer, an architect and an artist and a very articulate observer of change. In fact he returned to India precisely because he saw his country was in an amazing state of flux.
Gautam Bhatia represents a class of India’s intellectuals that’s attempting to see the way forward for their country, for their culture and for the people—all the people across all the vast cities and regions.
