Every-Day Life in South India, or the Story of Coopooswamey : An Autobiography (Classic Reprint)
Excerpt from Every-Day Life in South India, or the Story of Coopooswamey: An Autobiography You can at least do this, ' said he. Write a complete account of all that you can remember of your history and experiences. Make it as picturesque and graphic as you can. Recall and fill in all the conversations that you can remember, and I will correct and arrange your manuscript; I will reject what seems to me unsuitable, and if I can, from my own knowledge of the habits and customs of the people, add anything to your narrative that will make it more clear and acceptable to British and American readers, I will do so.' TO this proposal I agreed. Every week I brought some sheets to Mr. Knox, which he afterwards read to me with alterations and additions of his own; and then we criticised and corrected each other's work. In this way the present volume, like my life and experiences which it records, grew. That it is not without defects is to be expected; but, as Mr. Knox frequently assured me, that these imperfections will be excused for the sake Of the truth Of the narrative, and the correct picture of Hindu life that it gives, is my modest hope.
