Recommended Reading - Around India in 80 Trains by Monisha Rajesh

In 2010 Monisha Rajesh left London for India and travelled the length and breadth of the country via Indian Railways to write her first book, Around India in 80 Trains. Taking a page out of Jules Verne’s classic tale, Rajesh covered 25,000 miles - the circumference of the earth. 

Along the way, Monisha discovered that the Indian Railways - featuring luxury trains, toy trains, Mumbai’s infamous commuter trains, and even a hospital on wheels - have more than a few stories to tell, not to mention a colorful cast of characters. And with a self-confessed “militant devout atheist” in tow, her personal journey around a country built on religion isn’t quite what she bargained for.
