stamps illustrate the story of India in his book Related News A new book for young adults has arrived on the shelves written by an author who hates it when there’s too much stupid in a room B G Verghese declares himself to be a “young man of 87” who realised that “one should write a book and try to explain in simple terms what India is about” Written over one year Post Haste: Quintessential India (Tranquebar Rs 1295) will be launched at India International Centre in Delhi on May 1 and of Verghese’s 18 titles is the only one meant for young readers “Young people don’t have the benefit of hearing stories about folklore and tradition anymore because their parents are busy” says Verghese His other books have titles such as Rage Reconciliation and Security and Northeast Resurgent Talking about Post Haste he says “Our Constitution talks about India that is Bharat Alas few people know what is India that is Bharat From top to bottom ignorance is phenomenal” he says staring sharply from behind square glasses The drawing-cum-dining room of his home on the 11th floor of a central Delhi building would be stark white were it not for the colours accumulated over a lifetime There are books everywhere from table tops to a book case that covers one wall Art hangs all around along with black-and-white photos in frames A radiogram (it combines a radio and record player) refers to an old world of classical hobbies Would India have been similarly stark were it not for its old colours Post Haste offers a 350-page magical tour through its space and time It is also possibly the only book in the world that tells the story of a country through postage stamps “I decided to illustrate the book with stamps rather than photographs or drawings because stamps commemorate events such as winning the Kargil War or a monument to a great hero Stamps tell their own story Put them all together join the dots and you get a story of India” he says A stamp in the first chapter Dak Lure and Allure is of a sculpture in which a curvaceous woman writes on a clay tablet Alongside it is a note explaining how “one can surmise it was a love letter that would be secretly carried by a trusted handmaid to an ardent lover” As with the rest of the book the chapter unfolds through short paragraphs about the growth of communication from smoke signs to edicts on rock faces to dak runners — messengers who would “speed bare foot carrying a staff with tassles and metal bells whose tinkling would scare away animals” to the development of the postal system Stamps accordingly show Shakuntala writing to Dushyanta rock edicts mail carts and red letter boxes among others Post Haste has been dedicated to the dak runners of India and one of them is expected to be present for the book launch Verghese who used to collect stamps “as did a child in every home in the ’40s and ’50s” unearthed nuggets from libraries and scholars but relied a great deal on his own knowledge and experiences “How many know that the American national anthem The Star-Spangled Banner was written aboard the HMS Minden a warship made in India Or that Islam was established in India during the lifetime of the Prophet arriving with Arab navigators three centuries before the man with the sword Ninety-nine of 100 Indians don’t know this” he says “I am from Kerala how many people know that the oldest mosque in the world outside Arabia is in Kerala” Verghese is quick to admit that Post Haste is not a scholarly book it “skims the surface” but what it achieves is that it brings disparate details together like an accordion of stories “It is like a mother cooking she doesn’t use recipes She throws in one fistful of rice adds a bit of pepper or something else pours in some ghee a tomato is thrown it literally thrown in she tastes it and then adds some other bits and there’s the best food in the world India is a little like that and the book gathers together the pieces” says Verghese His teachers in geography and history had opened his eyes heart and mind to the surrounding wonders The rest of his knowledge has come from an eventful life A Magsaysay winner Verghese is still commenting on current affairs Post Haste is a different kind of appetiser He says “After reading this children should ask ‘phir kya hua’” For all the latest Delhi News download Indian Express App More Related NewsWritten by Press Trust Of India | Kochi | Published: April 8 born in Manchester to a Libyan family, Greater Manchester Police said the latest arrest took place in the inner city Moss Side neighbourhood and was connected to the terror attack that killed 22 people and left scores injured during an Ariana Grande concert at the Manchester Arena on Monday.
