Sagramanda: A Novel for Near-Future India: A Novel of Near-Future India

Sagramanda - Alan Dean Foster Near future thriller (with only hints of sci-fi) set in India. It has its moments, but to my mind doesn't say anything that hasn't already been said with more flair and mind-bending ideas than River of Gods by McDonald (http://www.librarything.com/work/49008). And if you want a closer-to-real-life view of India from Western eyes, try Shantaram by Roberts (http://www.librarything.com/work/5152). Both are significantly larger investments, with more than commensurate returns.
