This work contains studies of goddess worship in Bengal, Caste, Brahmaism and social reform, with descriptive sketches of curious festivals, ceremonies and faquirs. The object of writing this book was being to interpret, however imperfectly, the present day Indians to the English public, Mr. Oman did his best to bring his readers into actual touch with contemporary India at various points, using his somewhat exceptional personal experiences in illustrating and elucidating the subjects dealt with, which have yet to be sought for, and do not come within the ken of Europeans in India whether official or nonofficial. Included in this volume are such legends and stories as seemed to throw light upon the habits or the mental peculiarities of the Indian people. Illustrated.
