Land of the Seven Rivers: A Brief History of India's Geography (English) (Hardcover) Price: Rs. 309

Did the Great Flood of Indian legend actually happen? Why did the Buddha walk to Sarnath to give his first sermon? How did the Europeans map India? The history of any country begins with its geography; its rivers, mountains and cities. Traversing remote mountain passes, visiting ancient archaeological sites, crossing rivers in shaky boats and immersing himself in old records and manuscripts, Sanyal raises important, perennial questions about Indian history. Why do Indians call their country Bharat? How did the British build the railways across the subcontinent? What was it like to sail on an Indian Ocean merchant ship in the fifth century AD? Why was the world's highest mountain named after George Everest?

Different Perspective

The content of this book brings a different perspective to Indian History, the way we have read or studied it.

Its a fantastic read for someone who is interested in knowing the landscape as it was in old days and how they influenced politics, culture, wars and people.

Read it in a week :)

Most of the book in a single day. I wish he has written more about cholas though.

good effort

The author has made a good effort to coordinate and link various geographical issues pertaining to India. However, it is not a serious scholarly work. If you do not read it, it will not make any difference. It is not going to make any value addition.

Very Good book for history, a must to read

Book is necessarily a history book. At first i thought it as a geography book but i found it useful in the way that it connects the two. Learning history through geographical land marks is really fantastic ans fascinating. Reading this book gives you a feeling as if the whole scene narrated in the book is actually being played in front of eye of the reader. How India actually changed geographically, culturally, habitually, sensually, everything is covered. It essentially tells how India has changed over the large span of time.
It covers topics like The great flood, arrival of aryans, Ramay

Good Book at Good Price..

Recently ordered and got the product. Good price and that too free one day delivery. only drawback is the paper quality which is poor. But that shouldn't be a problem unless you are giving as a gift to some one.

Good book

I ordered the book with lower price, 159 rupees, but it comes one day after the actual date.
The book is great, Sanjeev told clearly regarding the history of India and tracked back about connectedness of India to Java, Madagascar, etc. Many things I get from this book which enlightens me about the great India.

A metaphor to our unkown history

I was quiet skeptical when a friend suggested me this book but after going through 1st few pages I was excited about what was in store.The book summurizes our entire history right from harrapan Civilization to British India, it gives us all those details which we scarcely find in general history books.It was amazing to know how Mt.Everest was discovered and why it got its name also fascinating was the story about Allahabad Pillar.All in all a good book but on the con side for all the naive readers a bit of knowledge about our past is essential.
