Sind Revisited is an account of Sind and is a unique work by the indefatigable Richard Burton. Having visited Sind more than once and with his keen observation, Richard Burton has provided much useful information about this very ancient land in his own inimitable style. The description of places and people inhabiting the "Young Egypt"-the nick name applied to Sind-the legends and myths, history, society and social mores, religious beliefs, politics and of course, the ruins which Sind abounds in, food habits, the Anglo-Indian army, railroads and several other subjects are narrated in the distinctive style of the author. His remarks on the character of the inhabitants and their peculiar traits as well as idiosyncrasies make interesting reading. The incidents recorded in the book are marked by wit and humor so very characteristics of Richard Burton, the versatile raconteur. Conveniently bound together, the two volumes of Sind Revisited should interest students of history as well as those who are fond of travelling in the past.
