Pankaj Mishra, the Indian novelist and essayist, is one of those writers who see themselves as World View Theorists, with capital letters. He writes sweepingly about history and philosophy, East and West, the rise and fall of empires, the meaning of life – books, articles, Granta, Time magazine, that sort of thing. His latest work, From the Ruins of Empire, was described as “fascinating, highly entertaining”, and that was just by his website, pankajmishra.com. He also wrote “Butter Chicken in Ludhiana: Travels in Small Town India”.
