Enchanting India
Enchanting India
Description
From the Jacket

For centuries travelers and poets have written about India. Her endless variety and mysterious fascinations. But such is the magic of this country, such her vibrant colours and richness of heritage, that words alone do not do her justice. In ENCHANTING INDIA photographer Rupinder Khullar has captured some of this essence through a series of images that are stunning, powerful and deeply moving.

Through 19 photo-essays dealing with a wide range of themes, from Hinduism to the Himalayas, from cities such as Kolkata and Mumbai to the splendours of wildlife, from the architectural tradition to the romantic palaces of Rajasthan, from the artistic expression of crafts to the natural beauties of the coasts, he conjures up image that both astonish and delight the spirit of India caught in the camera's eye.

A prominent travel photographer for more than three decades, Rupinder has done a variety of pictorial books on India, its cities, monuments architecture, art and religion. Among them the 501 images of Taj Mahal, India land of Celebration, India; the land of the Buddha, One day at the Golden Temple and Delhi, Agra and Jaipur have been widely appreciated.

नमास्कार परदेस में रहने वाले भारतीयों को अपनी सभ्यता व संकृति से जुड़े रहने का माध्यम प्रदान करने हेतु, मैं आपका अभिनंदन करती हूँ| धन्यवाद
Ankita, USA
Namaste, This painting was delivered a little while ago. The entire package was soaking wet inside and out. But because of the extra special care you took to protect it, the painting itself is not damaged. It is beautiful, and I am very happy to have it. But all is well now, and I am relieved. Thank you!
Janice, USA
I am writing to convey my gratitude in the service that you have provided me. We received the painting of the 10 gurus by Anup Gomay on the 2nd January 2019 and the painting was packaged very well. I am happy to say that the recipient of the gift was very very happy! The painting is truly stunning and spectacular in real life! Thank you once again for all your help that you provided.
Mrs. Prabha, United Kingdom
I am writing to relay my compliments of the excellent services provided by exoticindia. The books are in great condition! I was not expecting a speedy delivery. Will definitely return to order more books.
Dr. Jamuna, New Zealand
I just received my powder pink wool shawl. It is beautiful. I bought it to wear over my dress at my son's wedding this coming Spring & it will be perfect if it's chilly in the garden. The package came very promptly & I couldn't be more pleased.
