In 1914 Godfrey Davis arrived in India, a junior officer in the Indian Civil Service. When he reluctantly returned to England thirty years later he was a high court judge with a knighthood and a great love for India. He sympathized with the independence movement and shared a mutual admiration and friendship with Mahatma Gandhi.


Wendy Davis inherited this affection for India and its people. In Dal and Rice she chronicles the memories of her childhood and offers a poignant and measured character study of her father. Her story is part social history, part travelogue, but mostly a very personal account of a relationship with an exotic, chaotic, and often mysterious country.


Avoiding political or ideological perspectives, Wendy Davis has written a fascinating memoir that depicts an extraordinary childhood and a vanished way of life.
