A documentary maker can never be off duty in India because there are too many terrific stories waiting to be told. So says the author Adam Clapham, a BBC producer who has worked and played in India all his professional life. Along the way Adam has kept his eye open for the off-beat, the bizarre and the British angle. This book is a kaleidoscope of his experiences, stories from the political hard edge to the downright whimsical.
