The Life and Times of Nargis
The Life and Times of Nargis
Description
Back of the Book

The life and times of Nargis is a complete study of one of the most beautiful and talented stars of the golden Era of the 1950s. She was considered the icon of that period as Devika Rani was of the earlier golden Era the 1930s.

The anecdotes and minutiae the author has assembled with unsparing research make of a book that is extraordinary informative as well as elegantly readable. The value of this study is vastly enhanced by a portfolio of photographs and the fullest filmography to dare of Nargis.

The best and fastest service worldwide - I am in Australia and I put in a big order of books (14 items) on a Wednesday; it was sent on Friday and arrived at my doorstep early on Monday morning - amazing! All very securely packed in a very strong cardboard box. I have bought several times from Exotic India and the service is always exceptionally good. THANK YOU and NAMASTE!

Carl, UK.
I wanted to let you know how happy we are with our framed pieces of Shree Durga and Shree Kali. Thank you and thank your framers for us. By the way, this month we offered a Puja and Yagna to the Ardhanarishwara murti we purchased from you last November. The Brahmin priest, Shree Vivek Godbol, who was visiting LA preformed the rites. He really loved our murti and thought it very paka. I am so happy to have found your site , it is very paka and trustworthy. Plus such great packing and quick shipping. Thanks for your service Vipin, it is a pleasure.
Gina, USA
My marble statue of Durga arrived today in perfect condition, it's such a beautiful statue. Thanks again for giving me a discount on it, I'm always very pleased with the items I order from you. You always have the best quality items.
