Mundy, Talbot: Jungle Jest. V1. 15 Mar 2012

Talbot Mundy (born William Lancaster Gribbon) (April 23, 1879 – August 5, 1940) was an English writer. He also wrote under the pseudonym Walter Galt. Born in London, at age 16 he ran away from home and began an odyssey in India, Africa, and other parts of the Near and Far East. By age 29, he had begun using the name Talbot Mundy, and a year later arrived in the United States, starting his writing career in 1911. His first published work was the short story "Pig-Sticking in India", which describes a popular, though now outlawed, sport practiced by British forces.

Excerpt

Governments are like earthquakes. They sleep for protracted periods and then wake suddenly. Waking, they blunder expensively and—cui bono?
The easiest way to wake a Government is to cut the railway and the telegraph. The Moplahs did not mean that, naturally. Being simple sons of stream and forest, their idea had been, as usual once in a generation, to convert a few hundred thousand Hindus by fear, to make a horrible example of as many conscientious objectors as could be caught, and to keep the detested British Government afar off by severing communications.
