"This is a wise book, with profound thoughts about culture, spirituality, values, and family life. There is subtle, gentle humour, and lyrical descriptions of mountain scenery. There is so much to enjoy as well as so much to learn, so much to make you think, that this is a book to own and to reread."

About Cloud Messenger
About the Author
“Trollope-Kumar’s prose is evocative throughout...In this luminous memoir, she captures both India’s charm and its deep poverty and squalor without ever succumbing to exoticism, and she renders the people she encounters with sensitivity and insight."
