Sinopsis: Kolar Gold Fields is a small mining town in the erstwhile Mysore State (now known as Karnataka) in India. It was owned by the John Taylor and Sons Company, a British Mining Firm for more than a century. It was well known for its Colonial ambience and was called 'Little England' due to its British and Anglo-Indian population. It was one of India's earliest industrialized towns and was unique for its secular and egalitarian society. Aptly named "Kolar Gold Fields - Down Memory Lane" the book undertakes a nostalgic journey right from the days of the origins of the Kolar Gold Mines, its historical and mythological connections, its golden progress through the years under the John Taylor and Sons Company, its gradual decline, and the final closure of the once prosperous Kolar Gold Mining Company in 2003. Thus ending a golden chapter in History, which now lies buried in the annals of time. It then moves on to the Anglo-Indian Community (a living legacy of the British Raj) in the early days of KGF. It brings out vividly the glorious and cosmopolitan life led by that tiny vibrant community in KGF who lived in sprawling bungalows with beautiful gardens and domestic helpers at their beck and call. It recalls the grand Christmas Balls and Dances held at the Skating Rink and the Jam Sessions and Pound Parties in Buffalo Lodge. It finally focuses on the author's childhood memories of growing up in KGF in the 1950s and 60s. It reminds one of life's many simple pleasures - home, family, school, playmates, entertainments, games, etc. It recalls memories of old familiar haunts and landmarks of KGF and the people who were an indispensable part of life in those days. It succeeds in preserving the nuances of a bygone era.

About the Author: Bridget White was born and brought up in Kolar Gold Fields, a small mining town in the erstwhile Mysore State (now known as Karnataka), India, which was famous for its Colonial ambiance. She comes from a well-known Anglo-Indian family who lived and worked in KGF for many generations. Bridget completed her Bachelor's Degree in Arts in KGF and her Bachelor of Education Degree in Bangalore, where she has lived for the last 35 years. She worked as a teacher for 2 years then joined Canara Bank where she served for 23 years before taking early retirement a few years ago. She now writes Recipe Books and works as a Consultant on food related matters. She is the author of 6 Recipe Books specializing in Anglo-Indian Cuisine, which have been very well received all over the world. The 6 books published by her are: The Best of Anglo-Indian Cuisine - A Legacy, A Collection of Anglo-Indian Roasts, Casseroles and Bakes, Flavours of the Past (Classic Colonial Cuisine), Anglo-Indian Delicacies, The Anglo-Indian Festive Hamper and The Anglo-Indian Snack Box. This Book is a small attempt on her part to record for posterity, the history of that once vibrant place Kolar Gold Fields and keep it alive in the hearts of its erstwhile inhabitants, which still beats for it. It is a small Legacy that could be passed on to future generations. Bridget can be contacted on bridgetkumar@yahoo.com
