"India Observations of a Sojourner" is poetry and prose, an introspective collection written over a period of 40 years. Although many of the works are satirical, the introduction and postscripts point the finger of criticism at the author's inability to understand and accept India during his first sojourn. India is paradoxical, a place of multiple dichotomies best described as competing realities. For the western traveler, any personal opinion regarding India is most often colored by prejudices, fears and what they choose to see. Few can accept her co-existent beautiful and dreadful realities. India remains one relatively safe place in an increasingly dangerous world, a place where every western traveler has the opportunity to compare, contrast, define or redefine and then use those definitions to improve.
