About Andrew

I am a writer and freelance journalist based in London and Scotland, writing on India and other subjects.

My first book, Sikkim: Requiem for a Himalayan Kingdom was published in May 2015 by Birlinn Books in the UK and Penguin in India and has received widespread praise.

I am a Fellow of the Royal Geographical Society and travel to Asia frequently, particularly the Himalayan region. My blog about travelling through India, China and the USA in 2008-9 (luddo.com) was featured in The Times Sitegeist column. (luddo.com has now been superseded by andrewduff.net).
Before turning to writing, I was on the Management Board of a small strategy and innovation consulting firm, Edengene, and continue to work on occasional consulting projects with another consulting firm, Market Gravity. I also work with the geopolitical risk firm, Sea Change Partners.

I have also written for The Times, Financial Times, Sunday Telegraph, Times of India and India Quarterly and I am available for book and article commissions.

“Most British people travelling through India are gap year students, and their messages home are too packed with complaints about lost iPods and requests for a wire cash transfer to provide much real entertainment. Andy Duff’s Mind, The Gap blog is different – by turns insightful and funny, it’s the next best thing to a railway tour of the sub-continent. If you want to know what really goes on in an ashram, how to cleanse your nasal passages with a piece of rubber tube, or what the most popular item in a Delhi McDonald’s might be, it’s well worth a read.” (Michael Moran in The Times Sitegeist Column, Saturday March 21, 2009)
