"AIDS Sutra" - An Anthology



Writing on AIDS in India is like creating a rich tapestry of human stories from the complex every-day. This is precisely what the book AIDS Sutra, released this October in the US, promises to offer. It is an anthology of stories on HIV and AIDS in a country that is gripping with this epidemic at all levels. The book features a foreword by Nobel Laureate Amartya Sen, an introduction by Bill and Melinda Gates and essays by 16 contributing writers including Salman Rushdie, Vikram Seth, William Dalrymple, Sonia Faleiro, Shobhaa De, Siddharth Dhanvant Shanghvi, Nalini Jones among several others, each of whom spent time in the field exploring one aspect of the Indian AIDS epidemic. I am on my way to BORDERS to grab my reserved copy. I will update this space soon. In the meantime, to read the editorial reviews, click here.
