When Lowell Thomas set out to see India, he did it on the grand scale. Intending to stay about four months, he remained two years. He traveled from the extreme southern tip of India to the slopes of the Himalayas, from the India where there are no British to where John Bull rules supreme-in all, more than sixty thousand miles, through a land of the most amazing contrasts in the world. Thomas offers an invaluable account on mysterious India-giving a detailed look at life in that country, which includes indescribable squalor treading on the heels of unimaginable luxury- profound sanctity rubbing elbows with sensuality beyond belief- wisdom and philosophy hand in hand with hypocrisy and ignorance-the whole spectacle presents one contrast after another.
