NOT A BOOK REVIEW !

Most of the Books I had purchased on Flipkart had been neatly packed & delivered within the stipulated time frame. The Books were all brand new, unused & in readable condition – including this one (Hope Flipkart continues with it’s Services in this Excellent way.).

Interesting read, but almost.

This is a good book showing a slice of Indian culture and religion in a multi-geo perspective, from the north to the south east to west the author has picked up interesting stories to be retold here.

About the Review on Books (for the Content they hold) – Well, I prefer not writing any.

Books are a great source of knowledge, learning & companionship. Every Book we read opens us to new understandings & experiences – both good & bad. Like every Book is different, every Reader has their own unique journey with Books. I, someho

Good research in deed, a a must read for everybody who wanna know about true India

Dalrymple known for his research based on culture, is for sure given a treat for those who wanna know few of the many other facets of Indian culture.
Definitely India is not just a bucket of vEdic juices; it also has a various modified, localized, manifested forms of the culture which for sure comes out of those same "moola". But yeah it is these traditions and smears of culture which gives India its special notion of diversity; and for sure they should be saved for future too; Not in a negative essence, put in a positive annointment which beautifies our integrity.

A lot of people in India do

A Great Read

This book by Mr. Dalrymple is an amazing book in which he captures the lives of nine people each from different walks of life following a different religious path.

Through reading this book, one gets aware about some of the old traditions and practices of our country which are slowly getting lost in history. For someone who really appreciates the culture of this country and is keen to know about the same (without any bias), this book is a must read.

Thank you Mr. Dalrymple for writing such a great book and introducing us to nine lives, nine stories.

This is a good book showing a slice of Indian culture and religion in a multi-geo perspective, from the north to the south east to west the author has picked up interesting stories to be retold here.

Things we would see growing up in sub/semi-urban India which has almost disappeared now is what is being told in these stories, the sufi episode is interesting.

But its not a deep journey but a run thorough the landscape, as it squeezes many stories into one.

Good travel book.

A highly readable work

A remarkable record of spirituality in today's India. The author, William Dalrymple, confines himself to probing the nine characters and letting them speak to you. What drives people to religion or spirituality in the India of today? How do they keep up the old traditions? All this is recorded in a narrative that holds your attention. One of the finest books i have read recently
