Horn Ok Please: Stories from a UK Business Traveller in Mumbai (Paperback)
A Brit Abroad - When cultures collide they provide opportunities for misunderstanding, embarrassment and humour. This book is a collection of just such stories. Andrew Scowcroft writes with genuine humour, and a real love of the people and culture of India. His anecdotes take you behind the apparent chaos and mayhem that the first-time visitor often experiences in the vast, bustling city that is Mumbai. He views the disturbing poverty and stunning wealth of India with the eyes of a Westerner, but at the same time has been careful not to impose his values on their way of life. He sometimes struggles with this conflict, and in so doing we get a fresh perspective on this fascinating, vibrant and ancient culture. This book is a celebration of the people of Mumbai, their fortitude, and their sheer joy of life.
