Geoffrey Moorhouse records his travels across South India in 1992, from the places of worship he visited to the wide range of people he met on his way - the pilgrims and supplicants, agnostics and holy men and women, politicians and the last survivor of the pre-Independence princes. An honest and unflinching account of a deeply personal spiritual quest,
also brilliantly evokes the frustrations and delights of India.
