Amit Reddy grew up and—as his dad bemoans—grew rotten in the no-longer-Bangalore of the eighties and nineties. His first, and only, paying job was that of a copywriter for an advertising firm in Hyderabad, where at the end of four years he’d become quite adept at lying and living it up. He’s spent the last decade trying to distance himself from the two unfortunate talents by alternately traveling off the beaten track and gaining an education. Armed with a master’s in literary nonfiction from the Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology, a master’s in public policy from Georgetown University, and a year’s worth of travel stories, "Who Stole My India?" is his maiden attempt at writing something Real. ... read more
