"Wading neck deep in a swamp, your revolver is neither use nor ornament until you have had time to clean it" Mary H. Kingsley (1897)

Back In The Driving Seat?


After a very happy month in Britain: the country of my birth, childhood and entire working life;
I am now back at home.

I am back in India.

Back to the charms of chaotic, but generally well-intentioned, transport and shopping.


Back to riding pillion on my houseboy’s bike, whenever there are local errands to be run.


Back to constant warmth and frequent sunshine, despite this being the monsoon season.


Back to pretending I’m running the house.
When I know perfectly well that it’s my kind staff who keep this show on the road!

    • Thank you.. It’s wonderful to be back. In India I feel a different man to the one I seem to be in Britain. I think the light, colour and warmth have a lot to do with it!
