The author is a Jesuit writer and artist based in Mumbai, who was for many years the director of the Xavier Institute of Communications, and the editor of the Jesuit monthly Jivan. Most of the articles in this collection – there are 46 of them – were published in this magazine. They are contemporary reflections on what it means to live in a Church and a country which often leave much to be desired. The essays are grouped together topic wise: “Art and Communication”, “India and its Future”, “Faith and Myth” and “Ethics in a Changing World” are some of these.
Altogether a collection of essays which is clear, concise and persuasive, and meant for the educated and critical reader.
