    The travelogue is magnificent to say the least Sir Alexander Burnes style of writing is luscious from the start one really gets to know the lay of the land its people the politics economics and the intrigues in the air as an observer his reports on trade on Indus and state of Sikh empire must have done good to his masters he did a god job on that account but the moment he entered Afghanistan his vision eroded him I ve a feeling that he relaxed and took things for granted in that very treacherous air of Cabool and might that be the reason of his later down fall in the same place as well as of the British expeditionary force Its a pity that it contains no entries of his second sojourn to the same place Overall a good account for any one who wants to read of these places and times

    There are some mistakes in my earliar review which happened to due to some problem with the websiteProbably i cant edit my reviewOne word is missing from the bodyPuhtun mainland besides othersThe author is no doubt one of those gallant and daring British officers who later on came to be known as 'soldier sahibs'Sahib means officer or gentlemanThey were the pioneers and harbingers of British regime in the indian subcontinent now called india and PakistanAfghanistan they tried to swallow a few times but ultimately had to get rid of it being un governable by foreign peoplesThe same is also true as of todayI would like to be corrected in respect of these views by any goodreads friendsIt will of good educational value for me
