Fun, refreshing and sweet
Reviewed in India on 22 December 2019
Rajat Ubhaykar’s Truck De India is fun, refreshing and sweet. Suitably subtitled ‘A Hitchhiker’s Guide to Hindustan’, the author escorts us on random truck rides across the ‘cheek of our nation’ in a spirit of journalistic inquiry but also with a childhood fascination and a sense of adventure. The result is a delicious cocktail that you want to both savour and drink down in a single sitting.
This book is not going to leave you thinking you know much more about India, truck drivers or the highway economy. It is going to leave you with a good feeling of how less you know about your own country. How, no matter how old, well-traveled, well-read you become, it is always going to marvel you should you be willing to keep your eyes and ears open.
