Description

About the Book:

Regarded by the Mughals as 'the earthly paradise', Kashmir has held a particular fascination for many. Since time immemorial, tourists as well as pilgrims belonging to different regions have been attracted to this land of scenic splendour, bracing climate and sacred shrines. The present book is about this land and its handsome people noted for their tolerance, intelligence, industry and skill. It describes Kashmir's rich contribution to the fabric of Indian life -its art, literature and culture.

About the Author:

Somnath Dhar, after serving on the staff of S.P. College, Srinagar, worked with the Ministry of External Affairs, in New Delhi and abroad. He is the author of Kashmir: Eden of the East, Kashmir in Stories, Folk-tales of Kashmir, Tales of Kashmir, Folk-Tales of Turkey, and Kalhana. His book, Historical Tales of Kashmir (1984) was followed by Nepal: Land of Gods, Goddesses and Demons, which he co-authored with his wife, Asha (1985). Jammu and Kashmir Folklore (1986) won him two awards, one in 1988 and the other in 1989. as a historian and folklorist, he has presented papers at national and international conferences.

Foreword

A book on Jammu and Kashmir state, covering a wide ground, ranging from ancient history to cultural heritage, arts and folklore, is always welcome. Harving already run into two editions -1977 and 1991-and now being printed for the third time displays the popularity of the subject as well as the engaging style in which it has been written by Prof. Somnath Dhar. He has to his credit eleven books on Kashmir, besides this volume which has appeared under India-the Land and the People series of the National Book Trust. This book should continue to appeal to all those interested in the Elysian Vale, the fabled Jammu region and the mysterious land of Ladakh. I appreciate the hard, sustained work that has gone into this volume in updating the facts and figures, as far as possible.

I have great pleasure in writing a foreword to this revised edition, and commend it to interested readers as well as visitors to Kashmir.

Great service. Keep on helping the people
Armando, Australia
I bought DVs supposed to receive 55 in the set instead got 48 and was in bad condition appears used and dusty. I contacted the seller to return the product and the gave 100% credit with apologies. I am very grateful because I had bought and will continue to buy products here and have never received defective product until now. I bought paintings saris..etc and always pleased with my purchase until now. But I want to say a public thank you to whom it may concern for giving me the credit. Thank you. Navieta.

I am a long-time customer of Exotic India for gifts for me and friends and family. We are never disappointed. Your jewelry craftspeople are very skilled artists. You must treasure them. And we always look forward to the beautifully decorated boxes you use to ship your jewelry.
Diane, USA
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.
Heramba, USA
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.
