Here's a book, immaculately produced, on one of the most distinguished photographers in the world, that opens wide its arms and holds you in its warm embrace. Raghu Rai's India spans a distinguished career of some 40 years and provides a visual record of this country's seemingly commonplace, everyday events that give one an insight into the character of its people, their collective dreams and aspirations, and the vicissitudes of their day-to-day existence as seen through an uncannily perceptive eye, and a heart that warms to their desperate struggle for existence. What emerges from this prodigious body of images is a story of the fortitude and faith of the so-called "common man" of India.
