India Connected: How the Smartphone is Transforming the World's Largest Democracy (Oxford University Press, 2018)
The rise of smartphones—and with them access to the Internet—has caused nothing short of a revolution in India. India Connected takes readers on a journey across India to show how these devices have helped people leapfrog over the technological advances of the West, disrupting centuries of tradition and barriers of wealth, language, literacy, caste, and gender.
