About the author (2001)

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.

Mulchandani was born in Mumbai but has spent most of his life in Ahmadabad. He is a travel consultant.
