William Dalrymple

The Age of Kali

Hay Festival 1999, 
William Dalrymple returns to HAy to tell of his travels in India and Pakistan. He becomes the first European ever to be permitted to witness the macabre nightly offering to the goddess Parashakti; he meets such figures as Imran Khan and Benazir Bhutto; he experiences civil war in Kashmir; and discovers such Indian oddities as the last of the great tiger-stuffers.
