A Mouthful of Petals
A Mouthful of Petals
The Story of an Indian Village
Warm, graphic, impressionistic, eminently sensible, this humane and appealing facsimile reprint about 1960s India is a modest account of the part two dedicated, but far from solemn, young Australian teachers played in the grassroots problems of a developing country, a story of the difficulty, but not impossibility, of doing anything by individual effort to combat the misery, poverty and ignorance that affect so much of the world. ''''It describes with warmth, sympathy and occasional near - despair, the life of an Indian village from the inside.'''' - Nancy Cato, The Age ''''A fresh, realistic and accurate account of life in one Indian village.'''' - Mary Martin, Australian Book Review ''''A book that is not only beautiful but also important …a work of deep understanding …and profound humanity.'''' - J. Jordens, Overland ''''The writing is of the most unpretentious, as artless as a diary …a startlingly vivid picture of this one small remote spot on our earth.'''' - New Statesman, London
