A land of complexity, diversity and magical allure, India is a source of never-ending fascination. It is a place of many cultures, colourful festivals, a multitude of religions, and lifestyles that have changed little since the dawn of civilisation. In this outstanding portrait of his native land, Palani Mohan captures not only the romance of India, but also its true heart.
This book encapsulates an ancient world in changing times. A precious and sensitive record of lifestyles both continuing and threatened, a tribute to a country that is, in the words of Mark Twain, "the one land that all men desire to see, and having seen once, by even a glimpse, would not give that glimpse for the shows of the all the rest of the globe combined."
