M J G. reviewed Letters of an Indian Judge to an English Gentlewoman on
Helpful Score: 1
Fascinating snapshot of the last days of the Raj in India, told through a series of letters from an English-educated Indian to a sympathetic British colonel's wife he met once. No proponent of revolution or of Ghandi, the writer, a judge, acknowledges India's debt to the Empire, while musing on the universality of selfish narrow-minded people and honoring the exceptional individuals he worked with. Touching and readable.
