9788132113485: Christmas in Calcutta: Anglo-Indian Stories and Essays

Calcutta has one of the largest Anglo-Indian populations in the world. This is a community with members who occupy a wide range of socio-economic positions and who live a variety of lives that are always nuanced by their being Anglo-Indian. However, the community has been conveniently stereotyped by the media.  Christmas in Calcutta  goes beyond the stereotype and delves deep  in this study of the Anglo-Indian community in Calcutta. 

The book comprises life stories, memoir pieces and essays on issues of contemporary interest. It is organised into four sections: ‘Identity’ focuses on the origins, characteristics and the constitutional definition of the community; ‘Faith’, or specifically the practice of Christianity, is the subject of study in the second section; ‘Education’ points out some of the failings of the education system for the community; and the final section, ‘Community Care’, talks about Anglo-Indian care and the consolidation of their community through this care. 

By drawing on the vital lives of real individuals, the author hopes that there is a change to the lens through which these people of India are viewed.
