Autobiography: general

Sugar in Milk is a collection of twelve in-depth profiles of some of the greatest Parsis India has produced. Covering nearly two centuries, this volume examines the lives of freedom fighters, industrialists, lawyers, scientists, soldiers and musicians. Ordered chronologically, Sugar in Milk provides fascinating insights into towering figures such as Ardeshir Godrej, Madame Cama, Zubin Mehta, Nani Palkhivala, Dadabhai Naoroji, J.N. Tata and Sam Manekshaw, among others. Lavishly illustrated with photographs, these biographies of exceptional Parsis also reveal the history of the times in which they lived. Authoritative, fascinating and engaging, this is an indispensable volume for anyone interested in the staggering contributions made to India by one of her smallest communities.
