A book of rugged beauty. Dilip K. Datta, takes readers on a fascinating tour of history and introduces western (British or American) and Indian people who worked together to bring about amazing change. Source: Editor, Author House

Review 2: Professor Dilip Datta's engagingly written Tales of Western Inspiration and Indian Karma presents the reader with perspective on western (that is, British and US) colonialism in its impact on the Indian subcontinent rather more favorable than has been fashionable (especially in academic discourse) for quite some time. The negative effects of British colonial rule, in other words, are largely left to be inferred in Datta's book, and this is justified by the genre he has chosen, part anecdotal history and part family memoir, as well as by his explicit focus on the way Anglo-American educational ideals and ideas have served to inspire, in his terms "transform" the lives of many Indians, particularly in the author's native ASSAM.

Review 3: "I very much enjoyed Dilip Datta's book Tales of Western Inspiration and Indian Karma, and found the mix of reportage and fiction very interesting." Source: Linda Colley, Professor of History, Princeton University
