About The Book

The Story of Independent India with the Flavour of Film Music

The story of India, over the past seven decades, has been one of development and social and political change, which has often been forgotten, pushed to the recesses of our memories. Ankur, Seema and Sushant refresh those memories in Note by Note, linking the events of each year to a significant film song. For in a country that has a song for every season, every emotion, nothing qualifies as much as the film song to be a metaphor for the nation.

The Hindi film song has uncannily encapsulated the sentiment of its era, reflecting, as well as forming, the consciousness of the country's identity and mood. From the afsana the country was articulating in 'Afsana likh rahee hoon', even as Jawaharlal Nehru gave voice to India's tryst with destiny, to the mood of socialist India in 'Awara hoon', to the political and social unrest of the 1970s as reflected in 'Zindagi kaisi yeh paheli hai', to the dreams of a new and young India, it is all here.

A tribute to India and the exceptional republic that it has been, Note by Note captures the rhythm of modern Indian history - to the beat of popular film music.

About The Author

Ankur Bhardwaj is a journalist with Business Standard. Passionate about films, food and politics, he has an innate understanding of India because of his wide-ranging experience in myriad jobs dealing with technology. A lapsed MBA from Haryana, he has moved from selling telephones in Punjab and Uttar Pradesh to selling ideas to readers across India.

Seema Chishti is a journalist with The Indian Express. Having worked as a television and radio broadcaster with BBC in the UK, she has been riding the technology curve in reverse having finally moved to print journalism in India. Surrounded by politics, she is deeply interested in Indian society, its contradictions and its interactions across caste, class and regions. She brings her understanding of society to her writings on Indian politics and culture.

Sushant Singh is a journalist with The Indian Express. He writes on matters of strategy, defence, foreign policy and politics. He is interested in all things political and social, and his twenty years as an army officer have given him a unique lens on India. He attributes his love for politics and poetry to his early years in Agra. He has authored Mission Overseas, a book on three overseas missions of the Indian armed forces.
