Miniya Chatterji’s book Indian Instincts was launched last week in Singapore. The book launch, organized by the publishers Penguin saw an interesting response. The launch that also featured a panel discussion with Journalist and filmmaker Zafar Anjum, author Eunice Olsen and Dr. Chatterji, took place at Google headquarters in Singapore.

The book was launched on the eve of India’s 69th republic day at the World Economic Forum in Davos on the sidelines of Prime Minister Modi’s address.

Penguin calls the book ‘an accessible yet brilliant intellectual treatise about issues that affect Indians the most!’

Indian Instincts encompasses almost everything that makes an Indian. From tracing the possible first arrival of man in India to writing about love, sex, money, parenting and values in Indian society and discussing nationalism, religion and democracy, Miniya Chatterji presents an accessible yet brilliant intellectual treatise about issues that affect Indians the most. Indian Instincts is a seminal and deeply philosophical work, presented tactfully with entertaining and memorable instances.

This book, a collection of fifteen powerful essays that argue for greater equality and opportunity in contemporary India, holds up a mirror to what we Indians have become.
