MY INDIA by Jim Corbett


Email this review


The author of Man Eaters of Kumaon and The Non-Eating Leopard of Rudraprayag continues his portrayal of the life he knew in India, this time with the accent on the people, especially the honorable poor ones. There is Budhu who assumed an illegal debt; Lalajee who recovered from cholera; Chamari who lived and died a saint; Hindus and Moslem who were understanding even when their pay for working on the railroad was long overdue. The jungle is not neglected in an account of an Indian Robin Hood who with his Dacoits harried the police. Nostalgia for a life full of dangers and heartwarming associations.
