I picked up this little book quite by accident and I am so happy that I did. This is an awesome story about a man's adventure in modern India. I was blessed enough to be able to live in India in my youth and still hold the various cultures within the nation near and dear to me. This book brought a smile to my face and warmth to my heart many times.It is a nice way to explore India without all of the annoying dust, heat, monkey poo, crowds, and jet lag. Mr. Dimock has an amazing ability of story [...]

Probably one of the most sweetly sentimental travelogues I've ever read. Dimock's love for India comes through loud and clear of every page, via a slightly archaic tone/style of writing. While I found his style charming in a Colonialist way, I can see how others may find it too affected. Suited me just fine. An extraordinarily fast read, but one that I could easily recommend to any armchair or actual traveler.

India has always been a puzzlement to me. It is to utterly beyond my understanding. I bought this little book on-line and it is a nice copy, a good size for a quick read. However, the author did not draw me in,gave me no reason to continue, therefore I did not read all the book, just enough to bet a feel for the story line.

An excellent, lighthearted read and very informative and entertaining. Anyone unfamiliar with South Asian culture would have a better understanding of the "Mysteries of the East"

2012-12-22 -- too many obscure references to Indian sacred texts and gods for me. Wanted to hear more about life in Pune in the 1950's and disappointed that there was little mention of the city.
