Certain books really sparked my fascination with Central Asia. One is Rudyard Kipling’s “Kim,” which I read as a boy. Another is Lutz Kleveman’s “The New Great Game,” which I read in grad school…
Back then, I never would have dreamt that Kleveman would eventually endorse my own book by referencing Kipling! I am honored beyond words by this praise.
“Chaturanga” has truly been an amazing journey!
