Lang was a friend and student of India, its cultures and people, at a time when this was hardly a fashionable stance among white colonial gentlemen. --The Spectator
About the Author
John Lang (1816-1864), a lawyer and Australia's first native novelist, was born at Parramatta, Sydney, Australia. He later went to Cambridge in March 1837 only to qualify as a barrister and return to his home country. In India, Lang is known for his career as a solicitor, particularly, when he was defending the Ranee of Jhansi against the East India Company's policy of land seizures under the Doctrine of Lapse. He was also a journalist and had established a paper, The Mofussilite, at Meerut. As a novelist, he was associated with books like Too Clever by Half, Clever Criminals, The Ex - Wife, among others. Lang spent his final years in Landour, a place close to Mussoorie and was buried in the Camel's Back Road Cemetery.

The first hand accounts of the writer with Indians of note were interesting, and so were the glimpses of British civil and military life.
The book was strewn with typographical errors and the publisher needs to do a much better job at proofreading.
Well written with an English of those times and immensely interesting.
transportation to market, from bungalows to courtroom and condition of poor families to rich zamindars of that era. He wrote about how English men hated Mughal architectures and how slow and time consuming proceedings were inside the court. Its a treat for history buffs.
