Description
From The Jacket

India is no only the world-famous Taj Mahal, exotic maharajas and terrifying tigers. India is also its fast growing IT-industry with highly qualified specialists, and is set to emerge as an economic superpower thanks to rapid liberalization of its policies.

And yet there is still much more to see of India. In its turbulent history, the country-nearly a continent in itself - has seen mighty kingdoms rise and fall. World famous monasteries and enormous stupas came into existence during the reign of Buddhist monarchs; Hindu kings built temples with extravagant ornamental works dedicated to their numerous gods; Islamic conquerors, the Moghul emperors, for example, erected magnificent mosques as well as burial monuments. It is beyond a doubt that the Indian subcontinent is immensely rich in sites of historical and cultural relevance.

This 'old India' has retained its momentum till this day and Hinduism especially still exercises great influence on the country's society and culture. The traditions of the great religions, their rites and festivities, are still alive and flourishing in the daily life of today's India.

The turbulent and diverse culture of India has made an immense and persistent impression on the author of this book since his very first visit to the country. In fact, it has become a life-long relationship. In his photographs, Gunter Heil aims at showing us the cultural richness of India and at sharing his views and experiences of this fascinating part of the world.

Gunter Heil, born in Chemnitz in 1938, studied graphic design in Berlin and opened his own studio, which specialized in setting up art and media exhibitions. As a professional travel photographer and writer, he published his own travel guide, which focused on southern regions of India. He created large-size photo calendars, published travel books and took professional photographs for art-historical texts and travel guides. Gunter Heil lives in Berlin.

Testimonials

I recieved my Mahavir pendant today. It is wonderful. I was recently in Delhi and as it was a spiritual trip visiting Jain temples in Rajasthan, Agra, Rishikesh and Delhi i did not have the opportunity to shop much. The pendant is beautiful and i shall treasure it. I have attached a picture of me in India. Your country and the people will always be in my heart.
Evelyn, Desoto, Texas.

It is always a great pleasure to return to Exotic India with its exquisit artwork, books and other items. As I said several times before, Exotic India is far more than a highly professional Indian online shop; it is in fact an excellent ambassador to the world for the splendour of Indian wisdom and spirituality. I wish a happy and successful New Year 2017 to Exotic India and its employees! You can be very proud of yourself!
Dr Michael Seeber (psychiatrist and psychotherapist, Essen/Germany)
My last order arrived in a reasonable amount of time, regarding the long way it had to take! I am glad to find this and some other ayurvedic remedy, as well as books and much other things at your online-store and I am looking forward to be your customer again, some time.
Andreas, Germany.
