A Book Every Indian, Young and Old, Must ReadIn a recent interview with Aung San Suu Kyi she was asked about 'India' and she replied - "I prefer to refer to it a a land, it is so much more romantic." The title of this book reflects that beautiful sentiment and its pages thrill and surprise you with little known facts about our land, the sub continent, withouts its modern political borders.

Excellent ReadThis is an excellent book. For a history buff like me, this book is a treasure trove of information with an expanse that covers 5000 years. From Aravalis, Rodinia, the mythical Sarswati, Ghaggar, to Maurya empire to Mughals to present day urban planing - the expanse of the book is really what makes it a must have in any personal library.

Land of the seven riversA wonderful book and must read for all Indians. The author has really done a commendable work. This book is very informative and joins many dots in the history of India. Once you start reading this book it is difficult to stop. It touches upon all aspects including flora and fauna also. Importance of lion in the history is dealt in a very elaborate manner.

Very Good book for history, a must to readBook 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.

a great book.this book provides us a new angle to look into in our history. historians in colonial time like max muller, vincent smith were not above doubt. sometimes they misinterpreted our ancient texts like vedas, and puranas by mistake or may be knowingly. because our ancient texts were older than the history of christianity. so, there came a controversy over validity of christianity. according to old testament bishop usher calculated that the gensis took place in around 4000 bc. but, in puranas, the idea of four eons (chaturjug) had smashed the idea of bishop usher. it threatens the foundation of chri… (Expand)

A must readThis is a wonderful book and has uncovered a number of untouched aspects in India's geography and history. Best thing is Sanjeev does not seem to have any kind of baggage, a typical historian might have. He has analyzed the facts very objectively and all the assumptions have been made on a very sound logic. Also the book is easy to read and divided very judiciously in various sections and readers are less likely to get confused navigating through the book. Anecodotes are also intelligently interspersed. All in all a great book for anyone wanting to know more about some uncovered facts about ou… (Expand)
