India a secred geography (English) (Paperback) Price: Rs. 517

In India: A Sacred Geography, the reader is taken through the spiritual journey of the country's beautiful geography which includes the mountains, rivers, forest and villages. Every place has its own story, myth and legend that are embedded in its surroundings.

Summary of the Book

India is a fascinating country where every place has its own story. Everything, be it mountains, rivers, the sea, temples and forests, are linked to one another by these stories and legends. This book is an attempt to give us an understanding of the regions, traditions and beliefs that have emerged through the sacred places of pilgrimage. It tells us the tale of how the Indian landscape and way of life has been linked and kept intact for many centuries by mere pilgrims who have shared certain narratives and their meanings.

India that is Bharat

Is India One? Has India been one nation historically?

Colonial masters promoted the theory that India as a nation was a product of British administration. The subjects brainfed in their schooling swallowed this. The nationalists tried to counter this during the freedom movement, but after Independence, the theory has been revived by left oriented academics and self -styled intellectuals who seek to dominate public discourse.

A hundred years ago Prof. Radha Kumud Mookerjee tired to show the fundamental unity of India
purely on historical basis, bypassing social and religious factors. But a n

india is not a recent nation

amazing work, it seems author has put her whole life into the book. in future this is going to be one of the most important works on india- so its a must read. the author doesnt skips anything even if its a trivial lore. she covers the entire circle from myth to cosmology , from blind faith to transcendentalism- everything. and the last chapter was a unique discussion which i didnt find even lightly mentioned in any book that i have read. the most important thing is that the core idea of her book is very unique and strong which most of the people have skipped while discussing 'idea of india'.

Re-imagining India

Eck has penned a wonderful piece of work, based on her long association with India, academic as well as otherwise. The book in nutshell aids in re-imagining India through the invisible footprints of the pilgrims. They are ordinary, they are benign, and they are constitutive of both the geography and mythology of the subcontinent. They are the innumerable travelers- walking on foot, riding a small motor vehicle or a bus!

The pilgrims, all over the world, reproduce a sense of sacred geography. So do they in India.

The fascinating book may cause serious intellectual disagreements, like I had.

A Sacred Geography

This is a very good book that explains the intricate connection of Hinduism with the whole country. I congratulate the author for her deep understanding of India, Hinduism and the people of the country. A truly learned study
