Suketu Mehta portrays the pain and complexity of individual responses to the Union Carbide disaster in Bhopal and Sonia Jabbar grapples with her own sense of loss and terror as she visits the Kashmir of her childhood, the Kashmir of her imagination, which no longer exists. Kai Friese finds his bearings in the local geography of Jangpura Extension Shuddhabrata Sengupta loiters in STD booth, eavesdropping on the trivial details of everyday lives compressed to save time and money while Amita Baviskar finds the jetsam of globalization on the shores of Nicobar.
