Mark Tully on India and Pakistan

Mark Tully is probably the most regionally-savvy western reporter in the Indian subcontinent, with 30 years in the field. After a career reporting from India for the BBC, he fell out with BBC's leadership a few years back and left. Now he's filing analysis stories periodically for CNN. His most recent story is from about a week ago, which could seem an eternity in the conflict brewing between Pakistan and India, but still makes for an interesting read. I'm going to keep an eye on the Tully archive on to see what he comes up with next.

In 1992, Tully wrote a book of essays about India and his experiences there. It was published in the U.S. as The Defeat of a Congressman and in the U.K. as No Full Stops in India (I guess the publishers felt U.S. readers wouldn't get the pun in the U.K. title, so they came up with a different punning title for the U.S. release). I haven't read it in a while; guess I need to pull it off the shelf. The books are well out of print by now, but Powell's has used copies in stock.

I am not Mark Tully. I don't know Mark Tully personally. I don't know his e-mail address. I'm just another listener who has appreciated his reporting over the years.

Try the BBC.

Dear Mark, Heard u r in Darjeeling to make a documentary on the DHR.Well am an ex-student of Victoria School,Kurseong.Am also the Joint Secretary of VADHA(Victoria and Dow Hill Alumni Association)North Bengal Chapter.We have a lot of members in London too.You may perhaps be well aware that the DHR and Victoria & Dow Hill schools of Kurseong are connected historically.Both were establised in the same year and the schools were also know as Railway school since the children of employees of the Railways studied there,then these were schools for elite students....specially for the Britishers.I would like to meet up with you and talk to you about the connection of these schools with the DHR-since this aspect has always been neglected while writing or documenting the history of DHR.If you are still in darjeeling pl get in touch with me.

As sympathetic as I am to everyone's desire to contact Mark Tully, I have to say, this is not Mark Tully's site. I don't know Mark Tully. I've never met Mark Tully. Mark Tully wouldn't know me from Adam. And addressing messages to Mark Tully on this site is about as effective as writing them on a piece of paper, stuffing them into a glass bottle, and dropping that bottle into the sea.

As I suggested above, if you wish to reach Mr. Tully, try the BBC at .

No, there will not be a chance to get his e-mail. I don't know his e-mail address. Try the BBC.

Dear Sir,

I have read your book: "India's unending journey" and it has made a big impression on me - that big that I'm playing with the thoughts that I would like to try to translate it into Norwegian. Do you have any objections? :-)

Yours sincerely Sigbjørn

I recommend you read the comment I left above at 8:54 AM, March 26, 2006 in response to someone else who was operating under the misunderstanding that this page is a suitable method to contact Mark Tully.

Unless, of course, you're asking about the book *I* wrote called "India's unending journey". In which case, no, you can't.

I am surprised at the comments, dont people read that this is not Mark Tully's website, and he wants his privacy.

He lives in Darjeeling, and Kolkotta, so if anyone seriously wants to get hold of him go there

What do you mean there is no cat?

"You see, wire telegraph is a kind of a very, very long cat. You pull his tail in New York and his head is meowing in Los Angeles. Do you understand this? And radio operates exactly the same way: you send signals here, they receive them there. The only difference is that there is no cat."

- Albert Einstein, explaining radio

There used to be a cat
