"This volume brings together 47 selected interviews that lay bare the views of today’s top thinkers and opinion makers-politicians, actors, writers, sportsmen, entrepreneurs. At a time when interviews mean 15-second sound bytes in TV studios or ‘he said–she said’ discussions, when Q&As are heavily supervised by media handlers and spin doctors, Idea Exchange charts an altogether different course. Conceived as a regular column in the Indian Express, it works on the principle that newsmakers are best understood when there is time and a free flow of questions from a super-informed and super-inquisitive audience-journalists of the Express Group. Candid and eloquent, these pieces range from Barkha Dutt’s defence of her coverage of the 26/11 crisis in Mumbai to Shashi Tharoor’s justification of his tweets; from Amitabh Bachchan’s apprehensions about his family to Abhinav Bindra’s euphoric retelling of his Olympic win; from Thomas Friedman’s precise deconstruction of the recent financial crisis to Imran Khan’s unrestrained thoughts on cricket and extremism in Pakistan.
