  1. The author of the book was Heather Wood “Third-class ticket” 1980 Routledge & Kegan paul Ltd London
    “This tale is the story of a real journey made in 1969 by a group of Indian villagers. For a short time I was able to travel with them. I travelled 15,000 kilometers in the third-class carriage of Indian railways, over a period of seventh months. For me this was confirmation and culmination of studies in Indian history made possible by the generiosity…[diff foundations listed]. At various times all of these supported my studies.
    To the villagers the journey was an adventure thrust upon them by unexpected fate when their kindly landowner died leaving her wealth in a trust fund for her villagers. many of them found the confrontation with the world beyond their village alarming and unsettling. After their travels they returned to the years of crisis and war which resulted in the formation of Bangladesh………….Always the tale of these villagers has haunted me…….I wish to thank the villagers who shared so much and who asked that one day their story be told.. “
