Read full description of the books:
"Rich Like us" is the story of how the Emergency of 1975 ruined the democratic values that this country was founded upon. This is a story told through the lives of two women - the 'Cockney memsahib' Rose and the young, well-educated, unconventional Sonali. Loved to learn about life during the Indira Gandhi's emergency. A time promising wealth for the corrupt, but terrifying with sterilization for the poor and jail for the critical folks,(not mentioning the innocent masses of the post emergency days). Back to the story the emergency changes forever the lives of both women. Though truth and realities are a lot different. Still worth reading.
