India My Love

This is the extraordinary story of Dominique Lapierre’s love affair with India, from his first 20,000 kilometre drive across the subcontinent in a veteran Silver Cloud Rolls – Royce gathering unique teestimonies for his epic account of India’s independence, to his later encounters with the country’s disinherited and its saints, who taught him a wonderful lesson in sharing and hope and gave birth to the internationally renowned book and film, “The City of Joy”. It is a tale of maharajas and rickshaw pullers, of interviews with Indira Gandhi and the brother of Gandhi’s assassin, of life – changing meetings with Mother Teresa and the victims of the Bhopal disaster, of pig sticking on horseback, of life in the slums with a Swiss nurse and of saving a home for children affected by leprosy. Above all, it is an insight into how India, with its immense mosaic of people and fascinating culture stole a Frenchman’s heart and turned his life into a testimony to the fact that “All that is not given is lost”
