Is living in India becoming a joke? Do we always have to be ridiculed and remain disgusted? And why are we so vulnerable? Indians of every shape and size and of every hue and colour must have at least once in their lives felt ashamed of being an Indian! I for India is the fictional story of ‘Karan Sehgal’, a young man from Australia,
who came to India and fell in love with his nation, and then found himself in the middle of the horrendous November 26th Mumbai terrorist attacks, which changed his life forever. His passion and vision for his motherland became his purpose for living, and in doing this, he paved the way to an India of his dreams.

Khanna’s book is one of the first in the emerging genre of disaster fiction and is path breaking in its efforts to awaken the youth of today and usher in a new era of hope and prosperity in this crisis stricken country. It will leave you inspired, thinking and thrilled at the same time.
