Overview: The First Firangis: Remarkable Stories of Heroes

India has always been a favorite land for immigrants. The history of the country speaks about how people from various parts of the world like Persia, Central Asia, Mongolia, the Middle East and Greece invaded the country and stayed back. This exclusive issue from the publishing house Aleph Book Company explores the lives of some of the little-known foreigners who came to India and became an Indian to say the least. "The First Firangis: Remarkable Stories of Heroes, Healers, Charlatans, Courtesans & Other Foreigners Who Became Indian" is 344-page hardcover book written by Jonathan Gil Harris. The book elaborately describes and narrates some unfamiliar stories about those intriguing foreigners from the pages of history. This compelling book will allow you to decipher the reason behind the diverse culture in India.

The First Firangis is a comprehensive account of all the heroic immigrants from the sixteenth and seventeenth century who chose to be an Indian. Before the advent of the East India Company, when the Indian sub-continent was a Mughal empire, a number of foreigners migrated to India and stayed back. They were called firangis in local language. The author, a descendent from a long line of migrants on both sides of his family narrates the gripping stories of healers, soldiers, artists, pirates and courtesans who were not influential as such. However, they are remembered for their colossal work, adventure or heroic deeds. The stories of these interesting characters described in this book will definitely be a treat for any history lover; after all, not all history books give you the feel of a novel.
