About this title

Synopsis:

This is a study of Charles Alexander Kincaid (1870-1954) and his son Dennis Kincaid (1905-1937), British authors who worked in the Indian Civil Service. Deeply enamoured of the rich multi-coloured tapestry of life in India, they endeavoured to interpret it as they saw it, mainly for western readers, through a number of books they wrote, fiction as well as non-fiction.

About the Author:

AROON TIKEKAR (b. 1944) belongs to a distinguished family of litterateurs and journalists. A keen student of the literature produced by the Anglo-Indians, as the British residents in India were then called, Dr. Tikekar's interst goes beyond what is warranted by a purely literary scholarship. His recourse to an inter-disciplinary approach developed his interest in wider field of enquiry, like the history of modern Maharashtra. His earlier book, The Cloister's Pale: A Biography of the University of Bombay (1984), the post-centennial Silver Jubilee publication of of one of the premier universities of India, was an attempt to show how the city of Bombay and its university grew almost simultaneously, socially, culturally and intellectually.

Dr. Tikekar is Deputy Editor of Loksatta, a leading Marathi daily published by the Indian Express group of publications.
