This essay is built around two principal concerns. For one, there is the attempt to understand the real reasons and examine the actual process of the decline of Surat, the premier Indian port at the turn of the 18th century. For another, there is the effort to come close to the Indian merchants, to see them as individuals acting in concrete, often embattled, situations.
