Rajat Ubhaykar – Hitchhiking Through Hindustan

by Jeremy Bassetti
Rajat Ubhaykar

Today’s episode brings us to Mumbai, where Rajat Ubhaykar speaks with us about his travels hitchhiking through India with truckers. His adventures were published in his new book, Truck de India!: A Hitchhiker’s Guide to Hindustan (Simon & Schuster 2019). Part travelogue, part immersive journalism, Truck de India! is a fascinating glimpse into an industry and an experience that is largely off-limits to westerners. We also speak briefly about the cultural and linguistic diversity of India and travel writing about the country.

You can read more about Rajat’s book and adventure in a series of questions he answered here.
