About the author (2000)

Robert Bradnock is an international authority on India. He was born there in 1943 and went back overland in 1966 as a research student at Cambridge to live in South India for a year. That journey was the first of many visits living and working throughout the sub-continent. He is head of the department of geography at the University of London's world famous School of Oriental and African Studies.

A Bengali by birth, Roma was brought up in Calcutta where she graduated in English. Roma's Hindi and Bengali and Robert's basic Tamil see them through even remote corners comfortably.
