The words, Train Hopping, and the picture of a train on the cover of a magazine captured my attention today. It’s the June 2013 issue of Khabar magazine. There’s an article inside about a book, Around India in 80 Trains. You can also read it online by clicking on this link archived on page 48.
“For four months, using an IndRail pass, Monisha Rajesh traveled on Indian trains__fast and slow, big and small, luxurious and dilapidated__covering major parts of a country that her parents had left behind when they moved to England. What was it like for this journalist? Khabar brings excerpts from her debut book.”
And, there is more about this book on this website and the author’s blog. To take a look inside the book “Around India in 80 Trains” click on Amazon; or, I highly recommend that you listen and watch the author, Monisha Rajesh, read an excerpt from her book on this link.
