William Dalrymple called this book a love letter to India I fully agree A Strange Kind of Paradise isn t intended as a history text book nor a dry list of facts cough Romila Thapar coughWhat you have in your hands though is an incomparable collection of selected writings from non indian writers about India as they experienced it through the ages from the earliest Greek visitors to the modern American ones From wondrous tales of fantastical tribes one rud to have their face on their chest another took for its food the aromas of fruits and flowers and animals some dig up gold to modern rants about how this country is all about shit and filth it s all here Megasthenes amazement the Mauryan palace of Chandragupta to Inman s oatmealcom characterization of India as a sun scorched scabbed asshole of a country it s all here From respect to awe to disillusionment to hatred to derision and scorn you can find it allAnd yet for all the facts and profusion of narratives Miller puts in his book it never feels heavy nor does the book itself despite being 400 pages long D It s a sumptuous feast a veritable smorgasbord of stories incidents anecdotes and experiences You get a taste of everything that has been said of India through the millennia And all of this is beautifully interspersed with Miller s own experiences in and of India It is at the same time a history and a part autobiography a discovery of India and of the self But not once will you want to skip a page of the author s journey to get on with your own From Tony Mango to BBC Delhi Miller s own story is as readable as the foreign narratives and at times a lot pleasantYou ll find them all here Fa Hsien ibn Batuta Babur Macaulay Twain Kipling Rossellini did you know he made a film on India and so many From the famous to the almost unknown from mythical visitors who made India their home to real ones who never even visited so many peoples voices are presented to us And India is there in all its beauty and ugliness its grandeur and meanness its simplicity and its convolutedness its spirituality and its eroticism You see how people have come to this land searching for their own idea of India and for the most part they found it whatever it might have beenIn the end you realize unlike many narrators that India is not a single concept a genie to be bottled up in one well bottle It never has been People who thought they had found India had only found the facet they had come to search for here nothing People who didn t find theirs felt cheated and betrayed But India was and is than the sum of all that people came here for From spices to gold to sex to yoga to mysticism to elephants and snake charmers to cheap labour to religion to peaceyou can find pretty much all you want to here yes open air shitters too But if you attain your goal and go away thinking that you have seen and understood the real India then you are just like those uite racial blind mice of IndostanAnd this is the parting message Miller leaves you with And herein as he explains lies the charm and the unsightliness of India And therein in that moment of understanding lies the beauty of Miller s paeanI would definitely recommend this book It s gentle funny sarcastic and above all honest Read it and get a taste of this mass of contradictions you see as a rhomboidal piece of land somewhere in Asia and maybe you will be able to judge it better than Inman

The book is part history part travelogue and part memoir Oh and also a love letter to IndiaThe author Sam Miller was the BBC regional South Asia head and this is his second book His first was a similarly written book on the city of DelhiA Strange Kind of Paradise is a rambling account of what foreigners although who these people are in context to India is not very clear in the first place thought right from Greek visitors to the Chinese Buddhist pilgrims and Arab visitors to the most recent influx of Westerners from Brits to Germans to AmericansMiller interweaves history with his travels across usual suspects like Mumbai and Delhi to the off beat places such as in Central India where a certain Heliodorus the Bactrian Greek set up a victory pillar to Vishnu Also there are regular intermissions where Miller discusses his personal life where he married a Parsi woman from Mumbai and his subseuent move to India from BritainOverall Paradise was very light reading and was downright funny on many occasions Miller takes great pleasure in finding connections between places events and characters spread across something like 3 millennia of Indian history His footnotes were easily the most interesting bits to read aboutIf you aren t into esoteric connections though this book is not something that I d recommend to people to actually learn anything about Indian history or culture

The author of this book is a British correspondent who lived in India for many years and is married to an Indian woman He focuses on how India is portrayed by foreigners The book intersperses one chapter of his narrative about his experiences in India with another on a foreign power in India s history for example the Mughals Portuguese and eventually the British It is a very interesting idea and I liked the chapters on history but I thought the author sounded rather pretentious in the chapters that he wrote about his own experience
