Description
About the Book

Mansarovar, the enchanted, ethereal lake, may figure on many a bucket list. But going there on bicycles ...? It was a wild idea, meticulously planned, that went 'flat' from day one! In this engaging travelogue chronicled by a chatty bicycle, nine cycles are ridden, helter-skelter to this amazing destination, supported ably by a junk-food gobbling, gossiping and giggling bunch of five.

The storyteller cycle revels in the beauty of the land that is Tibet, imbibes the elements of nature right up to the parikrama of Mount Kailash, soaks up the enthralling history of the place, and sponges in the geography to present a sometimes philosophical, but mostly graphical, tickled and peppy account of the trip.

The view and narrative from the surface of the winding, windy, dusty, sunny Tibet roads, climbing inexorably to high mountain passes, and plunging into Shangri-La valleys, will roll you into another world. Here cultures clash, temperatures plummet, comforts shrivel, friendships blossom, and spirits acquire wings.

Come savour the 'high life' to Lord Shiva's abode, on wheels!

About the Authors

Anita Karwal
Anita likes to describe herself as 'an officer and a gentle mom'. She is a bureaucrat and belongs to the Indian Administrative Service. Her favorite pastimes include, reading, indulging her husband and kids, lording over the TV remote for watching sundry films and serials, and laughing at her own follies through the medium of columns that she has been writing for some English dailies. She has co-authored two books with Atul, her husband - Think Everest (2010) and Everest - Same Path, Different Peak (2016). Anurita Rathore
Anurita began her journey in journalism at 21 with The Indian Express and left day-to-day writing at the Times of India's Ahmedabad Mirror after close to two illustrious decades. Some special features for India Today as well as exclusive interviews with celebrities for the web later, she took up offers to teach school and college students the fine art of writing and editing. An aesthete, Anurita enjoys listening to tales and experiences. She curates and infuses life in narratives and believes stories must be told.

Testimonials
Thank you very much. Your sale prices are wonderful.
Michael, USA
Kailash Raj’s art, as always, is marvelous. We are so grateful to you for allowing your team to do these special canvases for us. Rarely do we see this caliber of art in modern times. Kailash Ji has taken the Swaminaryan monks’ suggestions to heart and executed each one with accuracy and a spiritual touch.
