About The Book
Vintage Shobhaa Dé, with scathing take-offs on everything, from the caste system to male chauvinism, from sex to social pretension . . . in other words, it’s all great fun’-Economic Times Watching the preparations for independent India’s 60th birthday in 2007, Dé-poised then to enter her own sixth decade-was struck by the thought, ‘Surely my life has taken the same trajectory as the country’s!’ While she reflected on this, many more questions arose: Does India really deserve to congratulate itself? Has it lived up to the early promises it made to its people? Does Dé herself believe in India? In Superstar India, an intimate confession to her readers, Dé answers these questions and discovers a jawan-young-India, ready to find its place in today’s world. Witty, passionate and gloriously opinionated, Superstar India celebrates the spirit of a nation that is certainly not about to lose its glow.
