One of India's greatest colour photographers and one of the world's leading travel writers join forces in the beautiful exploration of the many faiths and faces of India.
For several thousand years India has been home to all the major religions of the world. Writers, philosophers, and theologians from around the world (Max Mueller, Mark Twain, Mahatma Gandhi) have marvelled at the religious diversity and have said that the Indian experience might have some answers to the seemingly intractable religious differences that we see around the globe.
Despite the recent outbreaks of communal violence, India remains a secular nation where the great faiths of the world live peacefully together. Dinesh Khanna writes that "the normal, everyday practice of faith in India is almost instinctive. What one encounters in everyday life is religion as a way of life."
Packed with lavish images, this book attempts to capture the essence of faith in its various manifestations across different religions in India.
