May Recommendations β€” Reading for an Indian Summer

Indian summers come in many shades and flavours. Your experience is defined by where you live (geography), your family (history and culture; caste, class, and gender) and even where you are in your life. Some of us remember summers in terms of childhood memories of holidays, fun and games, and travel. As adults, summer is a nostalgia for those times. For many in rural India, it is a time of withdrawal from farm work and migration to cities in search of sustenance. In recent times, summer is changed by anthropomorphic climate change, which is wreaking havoc with summer and its experience as well.
