A Strange Kind of Paradise is a very entertaining take on Indian history The uniue lens that the book uses is to look at Indian history from the perspective of foreigners who have visited India over the past couple millennia That lens helps to convey rather effectively why India has always been interesting different Further Sam Miller regales the reader with periodic intermissions in which he shares his own experience moving to and living in IndiaWhile there is no dearth of books on Indian history what sets this book apart is how entertaining Sam Miller s narrative is The book is by no means the authoritative book on Indian history but it will make you want to look up that authoritative book to fill in the gaps In short this book will make you genuinely curious about Indian history that is the ultimate litmus test for a mass market history book Finally it s worth noting that the book is not for young readers Sam is particularly fascinated by sexuality in India and there is no dearth of references to it On that topic I was struck by how pre British India contrasts with today s India Indian writers and people in general seemed comfortable discussing sexuality writing about it and depicting it in ways that colonial prudes found immensely scandalous Today s India has acuired that distinctly western morality while the west has changed its mind and move closer to the old Indian approach to sex and sexuality My bottomline The book is no classic but I can t imagine anyone regretting reading this entertaining and uniue take on Indian history It therefore gets my top recommendationOTHER NOTESThe book is filled with interesting passages and uotes I list some of the ones that caught my attentionLamartine poet revolutionary who briefly ruled France on the vedas Indian philosophy eclipses all others it is the ocean and we are only cloudsThomas Macaulay A single shelf of European library was worth the whole native literature of India and ArabiaKarl Marx India has no known history What we call its history is but the history of successive intruders who founded their empires on the passive basis of that unresisting and unchanging societySchopenhauer on Upanishads It has been the solace of my life it will be the solace of my deathOn Kipling who was born in india He is still remembered as the man who invented the phrase the White Man s burden which became a shorthand excuse for the empire Orwell also born in India on Kipling a gutter patriot and a vulgar flagwaver On the visit by several british tourists during the 150th anniversary of 1857 revolt One of the tourists the great great grandson of Henry Havelock Note major general who helped capture many of Nana Sahib s supporters was uoted as expressing his enormous admiration for what the Brits who fought and lived here did To which a Bangalore blogger responded these Britons are unwilling or unable to come to terms with their gruesome past and the reality that the British Empire was like any other empire in history It was an enterprise of loot pillage and oppression EM Forster on Passage to India he thought of it as a little bridge of sympathy between East and West but this conception had to go because I think that most Indians like most English people are shits

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
