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.

Colette, Canada
I am a repeat customer of your store. I have bought several items from you and like the quality and service. Please keep up the good work of providing Puranas and Vedas.
Raghavan, USA
This is a beautiful website - and very customer friendly - easy to find your way around.
Sonia, UK.
Fantastic service! Delivery in Italy in two days!
Francesca Verna
Your custom service is great, especially Vipin. Vipin helped me locate a lost package. that was so nice!!!! I love this company. I love the cotton skirts with ruffle on the bottom. I also love how that when we place items in the shopping cart, the computer system allows them to remain in the cart until we are ready to purchase them. They don't disappear like with other on-line stores shopping cart system. Your the Best!!!
Heather Davis, USA
A true treasure vault of Bharatiya samskruti knowledge books! Thanks for this service.
Shashikant, USA
Very nice website, easy to use. Your one of the few Indian website that have an extensive collection of CD's that will ship to America.I think Indian website should expand themselves into the global community China sure has. China's market growth had to do with supply and demand. The same thing could happen to India, you just have to open the doors of India and let it happen. At least you seem to be doing that.
Donald, USA
Thank you for providing such an excellent service i recently ordered a number of books on the life and teachings of Sri Chaitanya and Sri Nityananda and Their associates, by various authors. it's very nice to find such a wide variety of Vaishnava literatures by various authors, all together on this one site, and you have made the selection and payment for the items you are selling, very easy. Shipping is included in the cost of the items - great arrangement, plus I received my order very quickly Thank you!
