In the 1920s, a young J. R. Ackerley spent several months in India as the personal Secretary to the maharajah of a small principality. In his journals, Ackerley recorded the Maharajah's fantastically eccentric habits and the shambling day-to-day life of his court. Hindoo Holiday is an intimate and very funny account of an exceedingly strange place.

I'd like to make a short film from this book. Maybe a trilogy with R.K. Narayan's "The Guru" and Paul Scott's "Staying On" (but with an elderly GAY couple instead.)
