Description
About the Book

'A journey of thousand miles must begin with a single step .. .'

Drawing on the riveting anecdotes of a solo Indian woman traveller, Notes from a Spanish Diary is a personal account of discovering the aura and flavour of Spain. Munching on the local cuisine and rambling along the lanes of Spanish history and culture, Ranjita Biswas has unfolded her indomitable experiences of travelling beyond her comfort zone, making this book an excellent choice for a tourist as well as an armchair traveller.

The author, in her very own journalistic style, has set forth her chronicles of Spain-her stories are poignant and tender, familiar and bizarre. The book may even send you off on your own adventure as you turn the pages and find her ambling on the trail of Flamenco and Mudejar art in Andalusia, discovering the stark resemblances of the Moorish architecture at Granada with that of Egyptian, Persian, Roman, Greek and even Japanese art forms, and savouring a paella of flavours at the fascinating cities of Barcelona and Madrid.

About the Author

I just received my package. It was just on time. I truly appreciate all your work Exotic India. The packaging is excellent. I love all my 3 orders. Admire the craftsmanship in all 3 orders. Thanks so much.

Your books arrived in good order and I am very pleased.
Christine, the Netherlands
Thank you very much for the Shri Yantra with Navaratna which has arrived here safely. I noticed that you seem to have had some difficulty in posting it so thank you...Posting anything these days is difficult because the ordinary postal services are either closed or functioning weakly.   I wish the best to Exotic India which is an excellent company...
Mary, Australia
Love your website and the emails
John, USA

Indira, USA
Je vis à La Martinique dans les Caraïbes. J'ai bien reçu votre envoi 'The ten great cosmic Powers' et Je vous remercie pour la qualité de votre service. Ce livre est une clé pour l’accès à la Connaissance de certains aspects de la Mère. A bientôt
GABRIEL-FREDERIC Daniel
Namaskar. I am writing to thank Exotic India Arts for shipping the books I had ordered in the past few months. As I had mentioned earlier, I was eagerly awaiting the 'Braj Sahityik Kosh' (3 volumes). I am happy to say that all the three volumes of it eventually arrived a couple of days ago in good condition. The delay is understandable in view of the COVID19 conditions and I want to thank you for procuring the books despite challenges. My best wishes for wellness for everyone in India,
Prof Madhulika, USA
