The book deals with situations, personalities, and events following the writers return to his hometown, Calcutta (Kolkata), after a prolonged period of absence, and recounts his observations, some in retrospect, of the changes that have taken place since he left. The author is not given to mushy sentimentalism. It is, in many ways, a critique of the Bengali psyche and the demographic changes that have affected the way of life of the average citizen seen from the perspective of an individual born into privilege. Among other things, the book examines the man/woman relationship and provides interesting cameos of the writers perceptions of Indian womanhood and, in general terms, the truths that he holds dear to his heart. The book is divided into five chapters, including some amusing anecdotes.

Henry Irwin And The Indo Saracenic Movement Reconsidered

The book focuses on Henry Irwin, a man who began his life in India as a PWD engineer and subsequently rose to the position of consulting architect to the government of Madras succeeding Robert Fellowes Chisholm, his predecessor in that office. Many of Irwin's creations continue to dominate the Madras skyline and are held in high esteem by local denizens. However, the blatant hybridity of some of these monuments, coupled with the fact that they failed to reflect the attempt to legitimize colonial rule, also accounted for their transience as an architectural movement. Parallels drawn with the colonial architecture of Calcutta and Bombay, not to speak of the impact of Indo-Saracenic architecture on some of India's princely states, draw attention to the movement. Likewise, its authenticity has been questioned against the backdrop of the architectural legacy of the home country during the same period.
