That's ten years ago, why is it taking so long to actually publish it?
It's a combination of editing issues and the huge problem of how to describe India. Unfortunately EBD's ideas of India are far from the reality of the period, ignoring issues such as self-rule, etc., and the question of the role of British govt bodies such as the Forestry is a fraught one. Trying to work out what is 'right' is quite challenging. Also I think there is a feeling that the further away from NCC's India it is published, the better.
Ronaele, it's interesting you feel that way about the doctor in both India and Gillian because Gillian was published earlier so I find it very irritating that the name of the doctor is different in that one. It's fascinating to see thing through someone else's eyes!
