The Himalayan state of Uttarakhand, in which I have a small cottage, is no stranger to visitors. People have flocked to these mountains for centuries, following arduous trails along impossible slopes to our holiest shrines high up in the Himalaya. A close communion with awe-inspiring natural beauty is the pilgrim's bonus. Nowadays we also go to Uttarakhand to paraglide down from its heights, and raft the rapids of our holy rivers.

But the happy pictures of tourists on elephant safaris, excited rafters and blissful faces of nirvana-seekers hide a grim reality. For not even the mighty Himalaya are able to withstand the devastating effects of global warming. In Uttarakhand, it has forced every glacier to recede, dried entire lakes in Kumaon, thinned its rivers and is now changing its seasons. Forests and their precious wildlife across the state are fighting a losing battle to survive against tree-cutters. From my cottage I can see barren hills with hardly a tree on them. It is not a pretty sight.

Uttarakhand, to some extent, is trying to check the damage. It strictly controls access to its precious biores- erve, Nanda Devi National Park, and places heavy fines on those who leave behind non-biodegradable refuse. Yet, there are very few true eco-sensitive resorts and operators in the Himalaya. So how can we contribute? By seeking out operators who, while benefiting from the land, leave no impact upon it, who build with eco- friendly material, and who employ Uttarakhandis. By knowing that it takes a paper bag a month to biodegrade, a tin can about a century, a single plastic bag a million years and a single styrofoam cup, eternity.

The Himalaya needs our protection now. No matter how much you paid for that yoga-and-rafting-on-the- Ganga package, tread as lightly as the humblest pilgrim. The mere sight of the hills is reward enough. Take away nothing but memories.

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!

Artwork received today. Very pleased both with the product quality and speed of delivery. Many thanks for your help.
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.
