Indian travelogues

Hello, 

I am trying to locate any travelogues written by Indian/ subcontinental travellers about their travels, in an attempt to provide some documentary basis for a basic 'world view from Indian eyes' kind of project. So far I have drawn a complete blank. Any suggestions would be hugely appreciated!

 

Thanks,

Jyoti Mohan
