One of the blessings (though it sometimes feels like a curse) of hosting Grand Tamasha, Carnegie’s weekly podcast on Indian politics and policy, is that I end up reading a ton of books and interviewing many authors. Reflecting on the year gone by, I made a list of my top three India reads of the year, based on some of the books I’ve highlighted on the show’s recently wrapped eighth season. This is no small task, as I devoured several excellent books that I did not feature on the podcast, and there are far too many good reads we did feature that I could not include.
With those caveats in place, we present our Grand Tamasha top three books of 2022.
