INTRODUCTION
Touching, Feeling...
Contributors respond to an invitation from Outlook to revisit their memories and describe their defining Indian experience.

Is it possible to get beyond current buzzwords like India Shining, or Not Shining, and 9 per cent growth, with or without equity, and 60 years of this, that and the other, while writing and reflecting on India? The short answer is yes. The long answer is contained in this series of memorable essays by contributors who have experienced India in different ways. They all responded to an invitation from Outlook to revisit their memories and describe their defining Indian experience. A Pakistani experience of India was sorely needed, repeatedly promised, but alas, not delivered. Perhaps they have other things on their minds. Meanwhile, what did arrive was delightfully varied, ranging from the uproariously funny and wry, to the sentimental and sombre.
