Sudha Murty, The Old Man and His God.

A couple of weeks ago, one my Indian friend Vijay Milampure  brought me a gift from India. It was the book written by Sudha Murty «The Old Man and His God: Discovering the Spirit of India». It was an unexpected and pleasant gift, because I love to read books. And with the words: «Sudha Murty is a very famous woman in India. She is like you. But she is traveling around India, and describes the events that happen to her. And you write about cities and countries, but she writes about people. Through this book you will be able better to understand India and our people”.
