Kipling loved India,he embraced everything about it. I think the character of Strickland really showed a white outsider who, like Kipling, wanted to understand Indian culture and people,
"(Strickland) held the extraordinary theory that a Policeman in India should try to know as much about the natives as the natives themselves."
I only know Kipling by his famous writings. He seems to me a man enchanted with the mysteries of India and what many British felt was "native riff-raff".
