Editorial Review:
My object in writing this book being to interpret, however imperfectly, the present-day Indians to theE nglish public, I have done my best to bring my readers into actual touch, as it were, with contemporary India at various points, using my somewhat exceptional personal experiences, as much as possible, in illustrating and elucidating the subjects dealt with, which, although by no means esoteric, have yet to be sought for, and do not, in ordinary course, come within the ken of Europeans in India whether official or non-official. Following the plan adopted in my previous books, I have included in this volume such legends and stories as seemed to me to throw light upon the habits or the mental peculiarities of the Indian people. The figures recorded in the recently published Eeport on the Census of theE mpire show that more than a half of the 3ntire number of men and women under British rule follow heH indu religion; that I slam claims another quarter of he inhabitants of theE mpire, and that the remainder is ade up of Christians {including those of the United Kingdom, I reland, the Colonies, and I ndia), and of Buddhists, Jains, Jews, etc. Very striking and significant figures indeed are these, and may well awaken many trains of thought and speculation.
