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.

Testimonials
Fantastic! Thank You for amazing service and fast replies!
Sonia, Sweden
I’ve started receiving many of the books I’ve ordered and every single one of them (thus far) has been fantastic - both the books themselves, and the execution of the shipping. Safe to say I’ll be ordering many more books from your website :)

This is my first purchase from Exotic India and its really good to have such store with online buying option. Thanks, looking ahead to purchase many more such exotic product from you.
Probir, UAE
I received the kaftan today via FedEx. Your care in sending the order, packaging and methods, are exquisite. You have dressed my body in comfort and fashion for my constrained quarantine in the several kaftans ordered in the last 6 months. And I gifted my sister with one of the orders. So pleased to have made a connection with you.
EB Cuya FIGG, USA
