Description

About the Book:

The colour and romance of Rajasthan, in both its unity and diversity, is the focus of this book. This essence manifests itself in Rajasthan's History, customs, celebrations, rituals, architecture and art, but most of all in the indomitable spirit of the people, whether noble or of humble birth. Shared notions of honour, chivalry, valour and hierarchy unite the people of Rajasthan across divides of social class and region, and give them their distinctive ethos.

The author, Sunil Mehra, evokes this ethos in an exposition that takes into account the multi-faceted reality of Rajasthan. Thus, the sightseer's curiosity about the historical and architectural details of Rajasthan's myriad monuments will be satisfied with the same felicity of description as the amateur etnographer's avidity for richly-textured descriptions of the customs and rituals of the Rajasthani people in all their variety and beauty. Nor will the historically-minded be disappointed-there is a wealth of detail about genealogies and dynasties, battles and stratagems; the anecdotal merges seamlessly with the larger canvas.

For those who want to experience, understand and shared the mystique of what Rajasthan was, and what it is now, this book will be an indispensable companion and guide.

About the Author:

Sunil Mehra was a lecturer in English Literature at Rajasthan University before turning to writing as a full time profession. Now a travel writer and a newspaper columnist, he hopes soon to put together a volume of short stories.

Coming as he does, from a civil servant's family, a large part of his childhood was spent in Rajasthan, where his family was based. His romance with Rajasthan, its people, heritage and traditions from a young age, provides the inspiration for this book, his very first.

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.
