Description

The fifteen episodes in this collection depict an era of a civilian's life in India that has passed. These engagingly written episodes depict a range of characters from nawabs who arrange nightingale fights, Gandhian governors who baulk at open air privies, and ghosts who haunt temple towns. There are many bizarre anecdotes written with a subdued sense of humor evoking a unique blend of fact and fiction.
