I have long had a fond corner for the temperament of the Indian people.
One time I saw some books advertised in another book which had been
donated to me, and had been published in Trichur.

I wrote to the Author/publishers asking for English prices of six other
books I was interested in.  There was no reply, but about 2 weeks later,
all six books arrived in a parcel smothered in low value Indian stamps;
no invoice, just the books.

I worked out the English equivalent of the cost of the books plus the
postage, and sent a check for the money, at the same time asking for a
further six books.

I have never heard from them since ....
