Description
About the Book

The forty three stories, from twenty one language anthologised here reflect the diversity and complexity of life lived in India. From the Violence and Mass hysteria of the partition to the suppressed rage and the gnawing self – pity of individuals trapped in broken homes – these stories capture the outer and the inner lives of Indian society. The sacred and the Profane, the elite and subaltern meet in many layered narratives in these stories Providing us metaphors to visualise ourselves. These stories map an eventful century during which our country emerged into a nation. The images gathered here from the haunted interiors of the twentieth century are booth disquieting and illuminating.

Testimonials

Very easy to buy, great site! Thanks
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.
BWM, NZ

Richard, USA
Another three books arrived during the last weeks, all of them diligently packed. Excellent reading for the the quieter days at the end of the year. Greetings to Vipin K. and his team.

Your products are uncommon yet have advanced my knowledge and devotion to Sanatana Dharma. Also, they are reasonably priced and ship quickly. Thank you for all you do.
Gregory, USA
Thank you kindly for the Cobra Ganesha from Mahabalipuram. The sculpture is exquisite quality and the service is excellent. I would not hesitate to order again or refer people to your business. Thanks again.
Shankar, UK
The variety, the quality and the very helpful price range of your huge stock means that every year I find a few new statues to add to our meditation room--and I always pick up a few new books and cds whenever I visit! keep up the good work!
