      Why is there a shipping charge for this item?

      Sellers with Flipkart Assured waive off the delivery charge for Orders over Rs 500. For Orders under Rs 500, a nominal delivery charge is added per item.

      Sellers without Flipkart Assured may or may not add a delivery charge to your Order. This is subject to Seller discretion.

      What is the estimated delivery time?

      Sellers generally procure and ship the items within the time specified on the product page. Business days exclude public holidays and Sundays.

      Estimated delivery time depends on the following factors:

      • The Seller offering the product
      • Product's availability with the Seller
      • The destination to which you want the order shipped to and the Seller's location

      Why does the delivery date not correspond to the delivery timeline of X-Y business days?

      It is possible that the Seller or our courier partners observe a holiday between the day you placed your order and the date of delivery, which is based on the timelines shown on the product page. In this case, we add a day to the estimated date. Some courier partners and Sellers do not work on Sundays and this is factored in to the delivery dates.

      What do the different tags like 'In Stock', 'Available' mean?

      'In Stock'

      Products‘In Stock’ are readily available with seller.

      'Available'

      'Imported'

      Sometimes, items have to be sourced by Sellers from outside India. These items are mentioned as 'Imported' on the product page and can take at least 10 days or more to be delivered to you.

      'Back In Stock Soon'

      The item is popular and is sold out. You can however 'book' an order for the product and it will be shipped according to the timelines mentioned by the Seller.

      'Out of Print'

      This product is not available because it is no longer published and has been permanently discontinued.

      Why does the estimated delivery time vary for each seller?

      Delivery times are influenced by product availability, geographic location of the Seller, your shipping destination and the courier partner's time-to-deliver to your location.

      Please enter your default pin code on the product page to know more accurate delivery times on the product page itself.

      Seller does not/cannot ship to my area. Why?

      Enter your pincode on the product page to know whether the product can be delivered to your location.

      If you haven't provided your pincode until the checkout stage, the pincode in your last used shipping address will be used to check for serviceability.

      Whether your location can be serviced or not depends on:

      • Whether the Seller actually ships to your location
      • Legal restrictions, if any, in shipping particular products to your location
      • The availability of reliable courier partners in your location

      At times Sellers prefer not to ship to certain locations. This is entirely at their discretion.

    Description

    The Land of the Seven Rivers is a curious read on how several stories and facts that are a part of the history of India actually came to existence. It questions a lot of incidents that have taken place in the history of India.

    Summary of the Book

    With wit and intelligence, Sanjeev Sanyal goes on to question and explore the country’s history. There re many questions, which may seem odd, that he asks in this book. For example: Why did Buddha walk all the way to Sarnath for his sermon?, Did the great flood which is a legend in India actually happen? and Why was the highest mountain named after George Everest. He has immersed himself in old records and manuscripts, observed the oceans and mountains and visiting ancient archeological sites. All this for the sake of finding out how the history of the nation has actually come about.

    About the Author

    Sanjeev Sanyal is a Global Strategist in one of the world’s largest banks. He is also a writer in his spare time. In 2010 he was named the Young Global Leader by the World Economic Forum. He has written another book called The Indian Renaissance: India’s Rise After A Thousand Years of Decline.

    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.

    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.
