An account of the three years Roberts spent living and travelling in India, but so much more too. Hailed by critics as a masterpiece and the best book ever written on India, it has the distinction of being as popular in India as outside the country. Deeply touching, richly profound and riotously funny, it is part memoir, part history, and part exposition of Vedic philosophy. Polymath or dilletante, depending on your point of view, Roberts here demonstrates his deep understanding and abiding love of this endlessly fascinating country and everything in it. Indispensable reading for anyone remotely interested in India or her culture.
