Ticket price

Travel writer and journalist Vanessa Able tells how she got behind the wheel of the world’s cheapest car, the Tato Nano, for a 10,000-km trip around India. Able braved white-knuckle traffic in the sub-continent’s big cities, was helped by spiritual gurus and professional driving instructors, and narrowly escaped death by a truck. She learned to appreciate that the real kings of the road were the bullocks, and fell in love with a mathematician, Thor.

Able began writing for an English weekly in post-Saddam Iraq before settling in Turkey where she was editor in chief of Time Out Istanbul. She writes for several national and international newspapers and magazines.

This event is part of India Day at the festival, presented by Kolkata Literary Meet. The FT Weekend Oxford Literary Festival will present an Oxford Day at the 2015 Kolkata Literary Meet.
