The author is Palagummi Sainath.  The book I believe is Everyone loves
a good drought, Penguin 1996.  He was recently interviewed for 50th
anniv. coverage on Public radio.  The discussion was quite enlightening.

I haven't read his book but it is supposed to have created quite
a few controversies in Indian parliament, including a condemnation
of his book by the Army!
