INDIA - The Land of Dreams and Romance

I had the good fortune to return to India the land of my birth in 1997 and with subsequent journeys I found sufficient material to write my first book India: the Peacock’s Call.  When that was favourably received I was urged to write another India: The Tiger’s Roar and then another India: The Elephant’s Blessing and so the trilogy of my Indian returns and travels developed. 

This was swiftly followed by Quicklook at India which was commissioned specifically to help business people, diplomats and serious travellers who require researching India rapidly to give them an appreciation and respect for this ancient land.

Annual return to India

Now I return annually and garner information about which I then write and of course photograph.  India will always have a fascination for people from both the West and the East and as it is a home from home to me I am happy to try and help them appreciate this great land and her peoples.

I am the Special Correspondent for IndiaGBNews.com published by Polaris Media, and continue to give my services as Travel Editor for India Link International magazine and guest blog for a number of different travel websites.  In addition I maintain my own blog on this website. My online photographic albums have sometimes hundreds of photographs on a place or event that can help the viewer to really understand and want to visit India to have a similar experience; and indeed to some other beautiful countries.

I remain committed to the conservation of India's wonderful wildlife, and try to help and support worthwhile charities that help disadvantaged children…I am a firm believer in the great Gandhiji’s saying

If we all do a little then together we will achieve a great deal….
