  • Description
    When did the first humans arrive in India and how did they get here? What are Roman coins from hundreds of years ago doing in a town near Pondicherry? Why does the Khmer language of Cambodia look a bit like Tamil? How did merchants from Arabia end up in Kochi? From the east coast of Africa to Australia, one big blue body of water has connected people for thousands of years: the incredible Indian Ocean. Read on to find out all about the fearless travellers and sailors, pirates and conquerors who set out to cross the ocean in search of gold and glory, and discover how geography can shape the course of history.||About the Author: Sanjeev Sanyal is a prolific writer who writes for adults and children.

    Must read

    A must read book for all those who want to know India when the world was new to many, how Indians ventured to far off lands before all those modern travellers who got so much attention for no reason. We Indians do not know much of our own story, Sanyal is a great story teller and the information he shares through his narration is a must read for everyone in India to fill their knowledge gap...
