    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.

    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.
