Summary This omnibus presents a unique perspective of travel writing by Indians describing Europe during the 18th and 19th century. This theme provides the missing link in the east-west paradigm. Whereas the other aspect of the western perspective on Indian civilization has been studied for quite some time, the descriptions of this omnibus invert this image and show Europe in the eyes of the Indian traveller during the arrival of modernity in the subcontinent
