Descripción

Set in the times after the Second Afghan War that ended in 1881, and before the third, Kim is most famous for its detailed description of the nuances and diversity of India â€" its varied culture, religion, and people. Kim, the orphaned son of an Irish soldier and a poor Irish mother who have both died in poverty, lives the life of a nomad in India under British rule. He makes a living by running small errands in Lahore and begging. He is so absorbed by the local culture that only a few realize he is a white child. Read the intense tale of Kim, a story that was ranked among the 100 best English-language novels of the 20th century. This edition has an introduction by Ruskin Bond. Printed Pages: 334.

Sinopsis:

Can a rag-tag quartet of new-found friends outwit terrorists during a crisis in India? In our precarious world of old grudges and ruthless high-tech terrorism, smart young American graduate student, Jill Rothchild, and her three Indian friends, Venkie (a RAW agent), Sing and Kinnari (two Narikuravas), zigzag north across India s landscapes, dodging lethal attacks, going all out to avert a catastrophe. Racing through India s varied atmospheres and running into its many quirky personalities, in a multitude of disguises and vehicles, these four friends are always skating on the verge of disaster. They improvise, discover inner resources and ditch murderous thugs in hoodies and Bluetooth earphones, again and again. Each time they narrowly escape with their lives. Learning as they go, the four friends make their precarious way through mountains between Pakistan and Afghanistan, to reach Kebab the extremist leader orchestrating not only their demise but also a cataclysmic strike against India. Can they stop his plan, an unprecedented assault on the electronic infrastructure that would wreak havoc all over the subcontinent? Gypsy Escapades tells that exciting story, asking: is it possible to fight terrorism without becoming like the terrorists?
