Books Info:

Rujub, the Juggler free pdf Excerpt from Rujub, the Juggler Sir Colin Campbell followed, and soon the city was once more in the complete possession of the British. Oude was speedily reduced to submission, many of the rebel leaders were either shot or hanged, and gradually the mutiny, which had cost the lives of thousands, was brought to an end. The tale, however, is not all of war. In its pages are given many true-to-life pictures of life in India, in the barracks of the soldiers and elsewhere. A most important part is played by Rujub, the juggler, who is a warm friend to the hero of the narrative. Rujub is no common conjuror, but one of the higher men of mystery, who perform partly as a religious duty and who accept no pay for such performances. The acts of these persons are but little understood, even at this lath day, and it is possible that many of their arts will sooner or later be utterly lost to the world at large. That they can do some wonderful things in juggling, mind-reading, and in second sight, is testified to by thousands of people who have witnessed their performances in India- how they do these things has never yet been explained. Strange as it may seem, the hero of the tale is a natural-born coward, who cannot stand the noise of gunfire. He realizes his shortcomings, and they are frequently brought home to him through the taunts of his fellow soldiers. A doctor proves that the dread of noise is hereditary, but this only adds to the young soldier's misery. To make himself brave he rushes to the front in a most desperate fight, and engages in scout work which means almost certain death. In the end he masters his fear, and gives a practical lesson of what stern and unbending will-power can accomplish. In many respects "Rujub, the Juggler," will be found one of the strongest of Ur. Henty's works, and this is saying much when one considers all of the many stories this well-known author has already penned for the entertainment of young and old. As a picture of life in the English Army in India it is unexcelled. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
