back in time to old familiar places. Re-live yesteryear: sleeping under a
mosquito net on a bungalow lawn, the summer nights heady with the scent of
frangipani blossoms. Hear again the distant yowl of a jackal at dusk. Recall
the rhythm and clack of the wheels over the rails as rural India - tranquil
and timeless - speeds by your window. Read tales of cultural dislocation,
poignant reconciliatons, and ghostly encounters. Walk the throbbing streets
of Bombay, drop into Nizams in Calcutta - and chuckle at an encounter with
a macho camel trader at Pushkar.
Above all, come "home" once more to that greatly loved, but now vanished world of Anglo-India.
III. India Travel:
