D. B. (Bill) Lall OBE (BEM) Lord Lall of Woodlands today launched his 3rd Book “England, My Love” at Taj Palace Hotel in New Delhi. The true meaning of the book is, “An Indian’s love affair with England.”
The launch was presided over by a panel of well renowned personalities like H.E. Nadir Patel (High Commissioner for Canada to India), General J. J. Singh PVSM, AVSM, VSM, ADC (Retd.) (Ex. Army Chief Gen, Former Governor of Arunachal Pradesh), Sir Mark Tully KBE (Former Bureau Chief of BBC, New Delhi), Sir Richard Stagg KCMG (Former British High Commissioner to India), Mark Runacres (Former Deputy British High Commissioner to India) to name a few…
His 3rd Book “England, My Love” talks about when Lord Bill Lall had came to live in England, nearly 60 years ago. It explains about how he fell in love with England and has also described why he came to live in England and then explored the conflicting and amusing English characteristics of Politeness, Prejudice and Reserve.
Bill threw his critical eye over English family life, homes and the complexities of the English education system, before looking at the English at work, their passion for sport and how they spend their holidays. Of course, no book about England would be complete without mentioning food and drink, a subject about which everyone has differing views.
Bill even addressed the legendary English weather – and discovers that it is not all fog and rain. He also examines how England promotes itself through unmistakable icons of English life. He has written this book in his unusual, inspirational style, which is so much evident in his previous books, to explain why England has been so crucial to his success.
The Book being an invaluable insight into England and English ways. It is essential reading for anyone who happens to have an opportunity to come to this country and it is an enjoyable insight into today’s England.
