    Good read if you’re nostalgic of southern India in the beginning of the nineties from a perspective of a foreigner The style of the book is in the form of travelogue cum journal so it’s suited for casual reading The author also had a easy writing style which makes us care of the little characters knowing we won’t be revisiting them in our journey

    Three uarters of a Footprint was first published by Bantam Press in 1994 Joe Roberts visited India specifically South India for the first time around 1990 and this book is the result of the wonderful experience he hadJoe Roberts stayed with an Indian family 'The Trivedis' in Bangalore for five months and travelled around This book is a travelogue Cum novel As a 20 something I don't recognise the India Joe has written about but then there are few things that remained the same Joe travelled madras Bangalore Mysore Benaras Ooty Madhya Pradesh Kerala etc Where ever he travelled he made friends and exchanged knowledgeThree uarters Of A Footprint is a travelogue from the eyes of a foreignerthe struggles he goes through the difference he finds between the cultures and foodI realized few things after reading this bookTravelling is much easier nowForeigners are cheated at every level because they know nothing about the local pricing
