Do you know that the British brought with themselves a legacy when they ruled India? They had a number of words that entered Indian languages, and these words are recorded in the dictionary called Hobson-Jobson. The same theme has been used in The Magic of Hobson-Jobson, a beautiful book that takes one to the adventure land of the island of Durjipore. Instead of taking Hobson-Jobson as a dictionary, this story describes it as a wonderful festival that was celebrated by the islanders. The Magic of Hobson-Jobson is a story of a pair of 13 year old twins, Floyd and Farook Foxwallah, who witness a series of kidnappings before the festival of Hobson-Jobson. Through a description of their personality, the story outlines how these two twins end up being heroes.
