"Indians are, beyond question, the best company in the world." - John Keay
John Keay is a British Historian and is the author of The Spice Route. I recently read his interview and am incuding a a few lines here...
The people of India is why I first loved, and still love, the country. I was not born there, but Julia and I were married there and we would quite like to die there. You/they are, beyond question, the best company in the world. Occasionally infuriating but always friendly, deeply sympathetic, entertaining, immensely hospitable, highly stimulating and ever surprising. I could go on. You make all things possible. You restore one’s faith in humanity. I have researched, travelled and written elsewhere – notably on West Asia, South East Asia, Indonesia and now China. The fact that I keep returning to India speaks for itself.
