Overview

For centuries, India's mystical allure has drawn in visitors in search of enlightenment, riches, romance, and adventure. In the mid-1990s, as a precocious twenty-three-year-old, author Eytan Uliel and his girlfriend set off on a journey of discovery, leaving behind the comforts of Sydney to backpack in India for four months.



Limited to a budget of twelve dollars a day, they lived, ate and traveled like locals. The journey around the sub-continent took them north to south, east to west: from the holy city of Varanasi to the modern-day playground of Mumbai; from the desert fortresses of Rajasthan to the bucolic backwaters of Kerala. Along the way they sipped tea in Darjeeling, experienced a train ride from hell to Madras, got bit parts in a Bollywood film, ogled at the incomparable Taj Mahal, hung with hippies in Goa, and met a whole lifetimes' worth of fascinating, entertaining and memorable characters.



Head Waggling in Delhi offers timeless insight into life on the road in India-the good, the bad and the downright bizarre-filled with wry observation, affection, and humor.
