With an explanatory introduction by Richard Pearson, this book reveals some of Thackeray’s lesser-known work which would later inform his novels. This book will be of interest to those studying Thackeray and nineteenth-century travel writing and literature.
In the old days it took a decade or more in a job to become fed up with it. That time has become significantly shorter, and the drama of frustration with one's career choice and current job is being played out in thousands of companies and cities in India. The country is experiencing an economic boom, and along with boom times comes greed, so there are bound to be countless companies that turn their employees into virtual slaves. As we can already see from the attrition rates at call centers, software firms, consultancies and similar businesses, employees are burning out. This book is intended as a fantasy journey for employees toiling themselves into oblivion, and perhaps offers them a rare pause in their busy lives to think about how simple life used to be before companies and the industrial revolution ruined it. This book follows the life of the author as he deliberately and purposefully dismantles his corporate life in the big city and heads for the hills to live a simpler life. It recounts the days and activities of his family as they set up life at a cottage at a remote hill station farm.
