Book Description
The looming spectre of death in the Ganga-Yamuna Doab made Proby Cautley wonder about the dichotomy of famine in what should have been a land of abundance. An artillery officer by training, the unlikely civil engineer in the East India Company's service embarked on his life mission- channelling the pristine snow-melt waters from the Himalayas into the parched fields through a network of canals, to wipe out the unforgiving shadows of famine. it was a gritty struggle fighting a recalcitrant colonial bureaucracy for approval and support, overcoming petty rivalry of other technocrats within john Company's hierarchy and disarming local superstitions.
