Everybody Loves a Good Drought
- Stories from India’s Poorest Districts
- Written by: P. Sainath
- Narrated by: Gaurav Marwa
- Length: 14 hrs and 36 mins
Everybody Loves a Good Drought is the established classic on rural poverty in India. Twenty years after publication, it remains unsurpassed in the scope and depth of reportage, providing an intimate view of the daily struggles of the poor and the efforts, often ludicrous, made to uplift them. An illuminating introduction accompanying this 20-anniversary edition reveals, alarmingly, how a large section of India continues to suffer in the name of development so that a small percentage may prosper.
