Quantity:

A documentary maker can never be off duty in India because there are too many terrific stories waiting to be told. So says the author Adam Clapham, a BBC producer who has worked and played in India all his professional life. Along the way Adam has kept his eye open for the off-beat, the bizarre and the British angle. This book is a kaleidoscope of his experiences, stories from the political hard edge to the downright whimsical.

  • The 400-croe diamond that cost 400 rupees
  • Mark Tully, the human face of the BBC
  • The evil British Traffic in Indian opium
  • High jinks and white mischief at Viceregal Lodge
  • The day America put India at risk of nuclear attack

The foreword is written by the author’s friend and one-time BBC colleague Sir Mark Tully, and the illustrations are from the pen of one of India’s best-loved cartoonists Mario Miranda.

Beware Falling Coconuts is a funny, perceptive look at the fabric of Indian life written for an Indian readership by an affectionate outsider.
