In our aging world, India is the land of the young. If Indians under age 35 were their own nation, their ranks would surpass the combined population of the United States, Britain and France.
‘The End of Karma’, recently selected as on of The Economist’s ‘Books of the Year 2016’, tells the stories of some of these young Indians, hungry, hopeful and keen to write their own destinies. Through her reading and conversation, Somini Sengupta brings to life their stories of resilience and grit. A rare opportunity to glimpse into this vital and unique demographic of India.
“Sengupta has a powerful grasp of the nuances of India’s socioeconomic landscape and uses this to piercing effect in this snapshot of the country’s youth.” – Booklist Starred Review.
- Participant: Somini Sengupta.

Somini Sengupta’s travel is partially sponsored by Sri Lankan Airlines.
