The Indian Eye on English Life; or, Rambles of a Pilgrim Reformer, written by Behramji Malabari on the occasion of his 1890 visit to London, is evidence that colonial subjects circulated at the heart of the British Isles and produced ethno-graphies of English culture and civilization. His travelogue provides an opportunity for examining the shifting ground an Indian man might be required to occupy in public in the imperial capital, especially since masculinity itself was one of the terrains upon which colonial rule was negotiated in the late nineteenth century.
