Delhi: City of Yoginis
Delhi: City of Yoginis
Description

Back of the Book

Delhi: City of Yoginis, searches into the innermost heart of the sacred space, known to the modern world as New Delhi. Suphal Kumar has amply described its history both ancient and modern. He has created a whole new perspective in his vision of Delhi.

Suphal Kumar, mainstream journalist and postgraduate of Banaras Hindu University, has used not only his literary skills but also his journalistic experience whilst compiling this work. His other literary achievements include Date-line Varanasi, a collection of his experiences as a journalist in the oldest living city-his hometown-where he served for nearly two decades as correspondent of a national news agency.

"…this book should be an eye opener and a jolt back to reality and the realization that it is time to search for one's roots not in the by lanes of London or New York but here in Delhi the seat of a heritage still unfathomed by those closest it."-Christopher N Burchett

I have always enjoyed browsing through the website. I was recently in south India, and was amazed to note that the bronze statues made in Kumbakonam and Thanjavur had similar pricing as Exotic India.

Thank you very much for your services. I ordered a Dhanvantari Deity from this site and it came quickly and in good condition. Now Sri Dhanvantari ji is worshipped regularly before seeing each client and in the offering of our medicinal products. Thanks again.
