Days and Nights in Calcutta

by Clark Blaise and Bhurati Mukherjee.Doubleday. $8.95. The authors, man and wife, after a long visit to her family, offer their individual versions of life in India. Their responses to conditions prove surprisingly similar, while the tightly organized, family-centered society in which they move appears to differ from our own more in tactics than in basic pattern. All of which makes the book unexciting.
