Overview: The Liberals



‘The Liberals tells us the story of an India in transition from a very personal vantage point, one that is full of cheeky
intelligence and delicious insight. Hindol Sengupta has given us lots to think about and even more to chuckle
about’; Santosh Desai

‘Here is an account of Manmohan’s children, the Gen Next who have the world as their oyster … Hindol Sengupta’s
droll memoirs at such a young age will echo in many a young person’s mind. Hindol speaks for India’s future and a funky future it is too!’ ; Meghnad Desai

‘An engaging personal tale of the post-reform generation told with spirit by one of its children’ ; Gurcharan Das

1991. The year the Indian economy opened up to the world and unleashed a billion desires and dreams. But who are these restless dreamers?

1991. The year the Indian economy opened up to the world and unleashed a billion desires and dreams. But who are these restless dreamers?
This is a very private story of a very public middle-class consumption revolution. From proselytizing American schools in Calcutta to Page-3 parties in Delhi and television studios in Bombay, The Liberals brings to life unforgettable characters spawned by the needs of the world’s largest democracy. Communist Bob Dylans jam with murderous villagers, girlfriends give lessons in capitalism, TV stylists snarl over white shirts, Amar Singh talks
about love and Akshay Kumar about what it takes to be the boy next door. Through it all, Hindol Sengupta lives to tell the tale of GDP rising.
This is the autobiography of liberalization, entertaining and immensely relatable, and an insider’s account of finding one’s place in a newly liberalized India.
