Publisher's Summary

From adventure to indenture, martyrs to merchants, Partition to plantation, from Kashmir to Kerala, Japan to Jamaica and beyond, the many facets of the great migrations of India and the world are mapped in India Moving, the first book of its kind. 

To understand how millions of people have moved - from, to, and within India - the book embarks on a journey laced with evidence, argument, and wit, providing insights into topics like the slave trade and migration of workers, travelling business communities such as the Marwaris, Gujaratis, and Chettiars, refugee crises and the roots of contemporary mass migration from Bihar and Kerala, covering terrain that often includes diverse items such as mangoes, dosas, and pressure cookers. 

India Moving shows the scale and variety of Indian migration and argues that greater mobility is a prerequisite for maintaining the country's pluralistic traditions.

Brilliant insights but narration is a let down

India Moving is one of the books I eagerly wanted to have my hands on after listening to Chinmay Tumbe on podcast with Amit Verma. It's a brilliant crafted book with thorough research and beautiful trivias. However, narration should've been much better. The narrator struggles with pronunciation of multiple indigenous words, especially when he tries to explain the way Punjabis call Canada and ends up pronouncing as Kannada. That's ridiculously annoying. There are multiple incidences like this through the narration.

The narration was not quite to the level of others

Narration was not up to the mark with abrupt and long stops in the middle and quite a lot of background noise for a book narration. In an audio book the narration plays a huge part in holding the audience which i guess was missing
