If you've seen the TV series then you'll love the book as you get a bit more background to the story of Bhaskar basically bumming around India on the BBC's pence. He does track down his father's ancestral home (now in Pakistan) and the humor along the way is quite "British."
I will say I learned more about exactly what you can see in India than other travelogues on the subject. I think an absolute must for anyone with a sense of comedy and history is the nightly Kashmir border closing ceremonies that are simply Pythonesque (watch the TV series and you'll understand).
