These short stories of fiction do not plumb the depths of 19th century Indian cultures, but they do show the struggles of the mostly ignorant British to survive, and the struggles of unbelievably patient Indians to tolerate them. Especially humorous and revealing is “A Horse and Two Goats” by R.K. Narayan and “The Tea Party” by Mulk Raj Anand.

The only one of these authors I had read before was R.K. Narayan. Saros Cowasjee provides a nice introductory essay, and the biographical blurbs are helpful. But the stories are all undated, unfortunately. The story I liked most was "The Tea-Party," an excerpt from Mulk Raj Anand's novel Coolie.
