Non Stop India, penned by former BBC Journalist Mark Tully was launched here today.

Detailing about the book, Tully, who also authored No Full Stops in India, said he had extensively covered India over the last 20 years.

"I have mentioned many points in the book..But some of the important ones include that people (in India) sometimes tend to ignore (societal) problems that lie and most importantly, there is a need for good governance in India," he said.

"I am not totally pessimistic in the book. What I fully believe is that India has got good potential (to grow)."

The book explains about the visit of the writer who has travelled across the length and breadth of the country which includes visiting Maoist-hit areas, problems faced by Dalits. The book has also mentioned the growth of Tata Group and its Chairman Ratan Tata.

He also cautioned that "excessive secularism" was a danger to a country like India and added that both "secularism" and "communalism" were used as "political weapons".

Editor-in-Chief, The Hindu, N Ram, who launched the book, hailed Tully as the most "influential" writer in India and also abroad.

The book, published jointly by Penguin Books India and Madras Book Club, is currently available at an introductory price of Rs 450.
