Description

Geography Of India is a factual, informative and academic book that covers all the aspects of the geography of the Indian subcontinent.

Summary Of The Book

Providing in-depth information on the various concepts and aspects pertaining to Indian geography, Geography Of India is a very helpful guide for students, research scholars, civil services aspirants and academicians.

The book commences with a chapter on the basic structure of India. Thereafter, it provides exhaustive information on its physiography, the climate, its energy resources, and drainage. Topics like Spatial Organisation of Agriculture, Regional Development and Planning and Transport, Communications, and Trade are also discusses in detail.

With assured brevity and accuracy of the text, Geography Of India provides numerous case studies for environmental degradation, agriculture, biodiversity conservation and transportation in India. Updated and reinforced data on India’s forests, its national parks and biosphere reserves and wetlands is also given. New and revised maps highlighting the hazard zones and parts of the Indian ocean prone to pirate attacks have also been provided. The new maps in the book include India Sex Ratio, West­ern Ghats, and Major Nat­u­ral Haz­ards in India.

Geography Of India can be useful for students preparing for the Civil Services exam, as 50 percent of the marks in the geography optional paper is related to Indian Geography.

Good for prelims, not recommended for Optional/mains

DON'T BUY.....IF YOU ARE NOT IN A MOOD FOR DONATING IT TO A LIBRARY..

If you are serious for civil services,then go for NCERT.This is just a copy of NCERT and of no use if you are not planning to spoil your time.

Recommended for Civils

A good book covering all the topics for Geography in General Studies (Mains). Given the proposed changes in Mains, this book becomes a must have for all aspirants. Plus can be complemented with other good books on General Geography and world considering the anticipated pattern/syllabus change in mind.

Good book for CSE Prelims and other competitive examinations

Book was missing pages; but got product exchanged

Received the book promptly. However, opened it after few weeks & found several pages missing. I informed flipkart via email & without any further questions they said they would exchange it. I did not have to worry about sending it by courier to them. The book was picked up from my home without any hassle & I got a new book at my doorstep in 2 days. Love flipkart's service & hence I buy ALL my books & games from here!

Really Good Book

This is a fantastic book on Indian Geography. Prof. Hussain covers most topics in a very structured and systematic manner with lucid language. I feel obliged to study this book once I went through the first chapter. Lucky to have such a good book in the market. For general awareness and for knowledge freaks, it's a must have.
