Pilgrimage to India

After 25 years away, writer and activist Pramila Jayapal returned to India in 1995 and spent two years reacquainting herself with the place where she was born and raised. Pilgrimage to India: A Woman Revisits Her Homeland captures some of her impressions and experiences as she confronts the culture that both enchants and enrages her. A recommended read for anyone who liked Adventure Divas’ India: Holy Cow.
