Part travelogue, part historical inquiry, part love story, This book explores the tangled web of passion, hatred and longing that has bound India and Britain together for over two hundred years.
Even today, the Anglo-Indian and Eurasian community in India, a legacy of the British Raj, is tainted with outcast status. Laura Roychowdhury traveled to West Bengal to hear their stories. It is a cultural and confessional journey into the heart of the Anglo-Indian community in India.
