Featured Book - A Corner of A Foreign Field
Author: Ramachandra Guha
Nineteenth Century England gave the world the railroad, electricity and the theory of evolution, but also football, rugby and hockey. The major team sports were all invented in one island, as were the popular racket games of badminton, table tennis and tennis...Cricket is a game played with finesse and skill and lacks the element of physical contact and occasional brutality. Guha argues that as a national sport Indian cricket has no parallel in the world...original, highly entertaining work.
