Earth Republic Chatter from the Capital’s Cauldron (and Beyond)

Author Name: V. Shruti Devi | Format: Paperback | Genre : Young Adult Nonfiction | Other Details

Earth Republic: Chatter from the Capital’s Cauldron (and Beyond) is a collection of ten free-wheeling articles written in conversational style, verging on the informally careless.

The potpourri of commentaries on theatre, sport, food, agriculture, world politics, Bruce Springsteen, Imran Khan, women’s rights, world peace, people’s belief systems, the right to privacy judgement… all with the flavour of New Delhi, right up to the present-day NCR, with tribal India and outer space forming a billowing backdrop for the grand production that is the Republic of Earth.

Earth Republic brings to the recliner, as well as to the office-desk-trying-to-look-busy, thoughts from time and space, and last night’s rally at the mantle-piece. It is an invitation to forge reality and rattle the galaxy, all in one pranayama-yoga clarion call.
