Horrendous Pronunciation of Indian Words

For a book set in the Indian Subcontinent why choose a narrator who cannot pronunce any Indian words. Words like Ganesh, Dupatta or Lata in Lata Mangeshkar are pronounced wrong. And the accents, oh the accents, terrible. Midnight's children is one of the best books I've read and this audio book does a disservice to that book.

What a performance!

Sagar Arya nailed his performance as Bapu. Excellent audio book. The book of course is legendary and a must read/listen for any Indian and a recommended reading for humanity in general. One might agree or disagree with Gandhi on individual issues but the overall force of his character cannot be denied.
