Let's Go Time Travelling! (Life in India Through the Ages)
Let's Go Time Travelling! (Life in India Through the Ages)
Description
Back of the Book

Find the answers to these entire weird, impossible questions in this fascinating book about how people lived in the past. Go time travelling through the alleys of history and take a tour through the various ages- from Harappa to the Mauryan, Mughal to the British.

Through short snapshots and wacky trivia, this book gives you a glimpse into the vibrant culture of India, as you learn about the life and times of kings, queens, viceroys and even ordinary children!

Spend a day with Urpi as she tries selling pottery in exchange for a few beads at Mohen-Jo-Daro; step back into King Ashoka’s Kingdom where Madhura prepares to be a warrior; watch Adil harbor hopes of becoming a Khansama in British India.

From food fads to fashion, art and craft to entertainment this book gives funny, freaky information that no textbook ever will. Peppered with Tapas Guha’s crazy cartoons, Let’s Go Time Travelling makes history fun like never before.

I am very thankful to you for keeping such rare and quality books, DVDs, and CDs of classical music and even Dhrupad which is almost unbelievable. I hope you continue to be this good in your helpfulness. I have found books about rare cultural heritage such as Kodava samaj, Dhrupad and other DVDs and CDs in addition to the beautiful sarees I have from your business, actually business is not the right word, but for lack of a word I am using this.

I have purchased many books from your company. Your packaging is excellent, service is great and attention is prompt. Please maintain this quality for this order also!
Raghavan, USA
My order arrived today with plenty of time to spare. Everything is gorgeous, packing excellent.
Vana, Australia
I was pleased to chance upon your site last year though the name threw me at first! I have ordered several books on Indian theatre and performance, which I haven't found elsewhere (including Amazon) or were unbelievably exorbitantly priced first editions etc. I appreciate how well you pack the books in your distinctive protective packaging for international and domestic mailing (for I order books for India delivery as well) and the speed with which my order is delivered, well within the indicated time. Good work!
Chitra, United Kingdom

Ekaterina, Canada.
I love your company and have been buying a variety of wonderful items from you for many years! Keep up the good work!
