India and the Indians

by Edward Fenton Elwin

A better understanding of what India and the people who live in it are really like, seems to be the necessary preparation for sympathy and work of any sort connected with that country; and to help, in however small a degree, to bring about this end is the object of this book. I have had unusually favourable and varied opportunities for getting to know intimately the inner side of Indian life and character during a somewhat long residence in this country. The contents of the book are exceedingly miscellaneous because the daily experiences have been equally so. Everything that is told is the[vii] outcome of my own personal observations amongst a people to whom I am deeply attached, and I have taken the utmost pains to record nothing of which I was not sure, and to verify everything concerning which I was doubtful.

Author of the Day

Dean Crawford
Dean Crawford wanted to be a pilot, but his plans were foiled when he discovered he was color blind. As he really wanted to do something he enjoys, Crawford tried writing instead and his books have topped Amazon's charts ever since. As our Author of the Day, Crawford chats about why he enjoys science-fiction and how it would probably take an alien invasion for humans to discover our humanity.
