History: specific events & topics

By turns humorous, sympathetic and hair- raising, this delectable travelogue-cum-memoir is a unique account of a young Englishman travelling through the India of the 1920s for the first time. H.G. Alexander, a young peace- loving Quaker who would go on to become Gandhis personal friend, writes of his first impressions of the subcontinent, the flora and fauna, the quaintness of travel arrangements, and always, the wide variety of people he meets from coolies to young students in the newly- established colleges, from city lawyers to wealthy Indian landowners, from hard-bitten colonial administrators to gentle men of God and brings a bygone era to life anew.
