The first ever Kipling anthology wholly made in India, featuring some less known but powerful stories and poems along with old favorites.
Rudyard Kipling: was he a vampire of the Raj or an Indian born in another skin, who upheld the British Empire but gave his heart to the East? Khushwant Singh, celebrated columnist and ardent Kipling fan, knits this anthology with a fascinating introduction on the life of this controversial writer.
This collection illumines the 'lost' India of the 19th century which only Kipling can give back to modern Indians and raises interesting echoes of the Raj.
