The present book is an attempt to record this treasure-trove of the state in a lucid style and is, thus, a veritable document on its rural populace - their songs, dramas, dances, social and religious customs, oral literature etc. The Tamil edition of the book, translated by the author himself, was awarded by the Tamil Nadu government.

Ilda, Brazil
Our Nandi sculpture arrived today and it surpasses all expectations - it is wonderful. We are not only pleasantly surprised by the speed of international delivery but also are extremely grateful for the care of your packaging. Our sculpture needed to travel to an off-lying island of New Zealand but it arrived safely because of how well it had been packaged. Based upon my experience of all aspects of your service, I have no hesitation in recommending Exotic India.
