ABOUT THIS BOOK

The Anglo-Indian Way attempts to fill that gap by telling the story of the Anglo-Indians through those of some of the community’s most interesting and extraordinary men and women. In a series of essays written by a host of writers, the lives of these personalities are described lucidly, and with warmth and honesty. Each of these people stayed and worked in India, and with their determination, enthusiasm and joie de vivre, they have all been active participants in the progress of the country in countless ways. From Henry Derozio and Frank Anthony to Ruskin Bond and Diana Hayden, the book is about people who excelled in all walks of life—as leaders, politicians, police officers, actors, teachers, jockeys, sportsmen, engine drivers, writers, quizmasters and many more.
As a chronicle of a community, The Anglo-Indian Way is necessary; as a record of life stories, it is inspiring; and as a glimpse of history as it was being lived, it is invaluable.
