Cecil Tyndale-Biscoe polarised opinion in early-twentieth century India as a result of his unconventional methods of educating Kashmiris and his attempts to change the social order of a society steeped in old traditions. He was a man of contradictions: a Christian and a boxer, a missionary who made very few converts, a staunch supporter of British imperialism and a friend of Kashmir's political reformers. He made many enemies in the Hindu Establishment, who described him as `exceedingly a bad man and one too much fond of cricket'. He earned the respect of two successive Hindu Maharajas, as well as local Muslim leaders. Through the life of a unique individual, this book provides an insight into the challenges facing missionaries in the early twentieth century as well as essential background on the history and religious make-up of Kashmir.
