      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.

      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.

      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

      • 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.

    A new genre, an unseen India, over 50,000 fans

    The Stopover is a book that presents the unseen people in India - their lives, their ordeals, their hopes and their dreams. A blend of fiction and fact, enhanced by photographs, it takes its readers on a voyage to 4 uncharted territories through four absorbing stories.

    The Tibetan Wheel of Wisdom : Varun seeks refuge in Ladakh from the storm in his life. He befriends three Tibetans, one a Buddhist monk. The Lessons of Life he learns from them change him forever.

    A rocking horse can gallop too : Quaint wooden carts, colourful rocking horses, handcrafted dolls – Channapatna, “the land of toys”. The town that witnesses the highs and lows of Vishwa’s life, his dreams and his nightmares.

    The sun shines forever : In Ooty, well-hidden from touristic eyes, lies the unique simple world of the Toda tribe. Vijay, a true-blue Toda, is determined to shield his tribe from the danger that a young city girl brings.

    I hear them calling : Vikram has it all. Deepika, the love of his life, and his dream job. In Chennai he comes in touch with ornamental fish breeding and he wants to make a difference to the animal world.

    Visual as well as Textual treat!

    The Stopover was my first photo-fiction and I am proud to say, it was one of the best experiences. The whole theme was well organised and there was no beating around the stories.

You look at them and wonder why you haven't gone there yet, if you haven't gone there yet. And I personally f...
