On Rishad Saam Mehta’s journeys — and as a travel writer and all-round road-trip junkie, he’s been on many — there’s a particular thing he noticed. There’s not a highway, road or dirt track in India where you can’t find a cup of chai whenever you want it. And with those cuppas come encounters and incidents that make travelling in India a fascinating adventure. In this riveting book, which includes stories of honey- and saffron-infused tea shared with a shepherd in Kashmir, and a strong brew that revives the author after almost getting lynched by an irate mob in Kerala, Rishad takes you across the length and breadth of India, from Manali to Munnar, from the Rann of Kutch to Khajuraho, with a wonderful combination of wit, sensitivity and insight.

Not so bad one...
It started off very boring.. I was expecting lot of travel and lots of information of India, after I reading this I realise that 200 pages is not enough to write about travels across India..
Author's travels mostly consisted of travels in North, near Delhi, Jammu, Leh, etc..
One more misunderstanding of mine about this book is that I was expecting more of adventures, backpacking, camping kind of stuff.. It is a 'travel' genred novel.. In this novel, travel means, travel by bike, car or air, which means not much of a adventure stuff.. And the author most of the time stays in a hotel or a friend's place, which means it is not much of a backpacking or camping stuff..
But for a person like me, who likes travelling and all.. This is a refreshment and provokes to hit the road again.
