Description

Sarat Chandra Das (1849 – 1917) was headmaster of the (Tibetan) Bhutia Boarding School in Darjeeling and travelled to Tibet several times from 1879 onwards, firstly as scholar and subsequently as spy for the British. Known (pejoratively) as “the Babu”, Chandra Das was one of the models for the “Great Game” sections of Kipling’s Kim, particularly the figure of Hurree Babu, a would-be ethnographer who makes great use of disguise in his espionage work.
