Travels With Rusi In Southern India

Travels With Rusi In Southern India

by Mac Rogers




Without doubt the high point of Mac and Maggie's journey through Bangalore, Kerala, Tamil Nadu and Andhra Pradesh is the sight of the guru Sathya Sai Baba at his ashram in Puttaparthi. But that's not to say that this is a purely spiritual quest! The views and aromas of Southern India, plus the wildlife and the delicious food, are all entertainingly described in Mac's diary of their three-week chauffeur- driven tour.

Their guide and 'magic man' is of course the indefatigable Rusi, a Parsee friend, driver and shrewd negotiator. The English travellers' fondness for swimming pools and clean hotel rooms is well answered by Rusi, who is also master of the 'wayside stop' and all that this implies. Crowded streets and shops, strange little cafes and the odd surly host are counterbalanced by moments of utter peace and spiritual calm that only aficionados of India will fully appreciate. But for new visitors as well as old hands, Travels with Rusi is an ideal guide and a fond reminder of happy times.

Mac Rogers graduated from Leeds University and RADA. He has pursued a varied acting career, appearing notably in Luc Besson's Joan of Arc as the Bishop. He lives in Teddington with his wife Maggie, but it is from their idyllic Welsh cottage that he draws his literary inspiration. He is currently filming with Benicio del Toro in The Wolfman.
