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.

Re-imagining IndiaEck 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!
