The travelogue written by a British army officer who travelled from Delhi to Kabul in and around 1840 while on military duty, gives a graphic details about the major towns and cities of Punjab, the topography of the landscape of Punjab, the people and their dresses and style of living, climate, military camps, military camps and British military operations. This travelogue, because of its details and factual accuracy, is more less a social chronicle of the times as described by a foreigner. India's variety of culture, language and life style come out vividly before our eyes as we travel through Punjab with the British author during the early decades of 19th century.
