A Vision India: Kerala and Lakshadweep
A Vision India: Kerala and Lakshadweep
Description
Introduction

Kerala is India’s most idyllic state. Endowed generously by nature, it is an exotic paradise of golden beaches, palm-fringed backwaters mist-covered hills, lush tropical forests and unique wildlife. Kerala also has a rich cultural heritage and tradition of performing arts.

In the midst of all greenery and countless coconut palms, are the pepper creepers swaying enticingly in the gentle breeze, which have, all through history brought sea-traders to this legendary land. Ships from countries of the East and the West, laden with gold anchored off the ports of Kerala bringing the Arabs, the Jews and the Christians to this marvel land. Today Kerala presents a melting-pot of various cultures blending in graceful harmony.

Better known as ‘God’s Own Country’, Kerala is today one of the most sought after tourist destinations in Asia. It has been described by the National Geographic’s Traveller magazine as ‘one of the 50 places of a lifetime’.

Kerala is also foremost in having the largest inflow of petro-money from the 20-lakh-odd Malayalis working in the Gulf, which has somewhat changed its landscape.

This book on Kerala and Lakshadweep is the 8th in the series ‘A Vision of India’. Supported by colourful illustrations, the simple text will help you to discover the endless charm of Kerala and Lakshadweep.

Back of the Book

Why is the ‘Silent Valley’ in Kerala so named?

Where is Thumba? Why is it internationally known?

What is the Portuguese nut?
These are just few of the many fascinating questions to which you will find answers in this book - Kerala and Lakshadweep. Colourful illustrations enhance the wide-ranging information.

“I am an Indian and India is my country”-saying these words is not enough. Nationalism is much more than mere words. We must know the country we life in thoroughly. So let us begin our voyage of discovery here. This book is a part of our on-going series, A Vision of India.

Hello, Just a short feedback on your new website layout: the old one was better than most of what you come across on the www, but you've managed to make it even better. I very much like the new look of the book pages and 'my gallery' pages. Thanks again for offering me a look inside the books. It's a big help for finding out if it's really what I want. Everything is perfect: the presentation of the items, your way of handling the orders, and the fast and always diligently packed parcels. Thanks to all at Exotic India, Walter

Thanks to all the staff at Exotic Art for helping me acquire these wonderful books from the holy land of Bharata Varsha. Happy new year to you all and all glories to Sri Krsna, peace...

Exotic India is a fine organization to do business with. I have had the best trading experience and the very best customer service. The communication I have had with Vipin K. is of the highest quality; my questions and requests were quickly and professionally answered and fulfilled. A special thanks to the artist Kailash Raj for the beautiful art he produces; I have certainly been enriched by the way his art exemplifies the stories they tell. Many Thanks to all concerned.
W. J. Barnett, USA
My beautiful shawl arrived today. Thank you so much for this lovely shawl. Really, it is nicer than the photograph. I hope you and yours have a very Happy New Year and much prosperity in the New Year. With gratitude
Tom Anderson, Canada
An excellent website, as always. I do not even mention its content, which is beautiful beyond words, but I am merely referring to the great functionality and optimal design of your website. Links always work, the information is accurate and complete, images are very clear, including scanned content of your books. A pleasure to purchase from you.
Oreste, USA
I just wanted to extend my profound thanks to you for expediting my order. It was so well packaged and all import processes taken care of so the beautiful statue arrived in fabulous condition. It looks truly wonderful and I am so happy to have Lord Ganesh take pride of place in my home. Thank you again for your superb service. Best regards
