ROMA (The Gypsy World)
ROMA (The Gypsy World)
Description
About the Book:

The first Gypso-Anthropological study of Roma - the Gypsies of the world - is the result of an extensive Socio-Anthropological Survey covering twenty five countries of Europe, America and USSR. This is a vivid, account of the Banjara and other nomadic communities of India and the world.

The scholar who is an eminent social scientist and a creative writer has not only applied successfully the traditional techniques of research of participant and non-participant observations, but also his own approach and methodology. The book is based on his 11-year long research centered on Roma - the Gypsies who have preserved and lead their nomadic or semi-nomadic life throughout the world even in advanced countries.

This is a study in depth in the context of Indian nomads who migrated from their motherland, wave after wave, to other parts of the world - carrying with them the culture of their times with the inter-mingling of local traditions and customs.

Testimonials
I received the statue today, and it is beautiful! Worth the wait! Thank you so much, blessings, Kimberly.
Kimberly, USA
I received the Green Tara Thangka described below right on schedule. Thank you a million times for that. My teacher loved it and was extremely moved by it. Although I have seen a lot of Green Tara thangkas, and have looked at other Green Tara Thangkas you offer and found them all to be wonderful, the one I purchased is by far the most beautiful I have ever seen -- or at least it is the one that most speaks to me.
John, USA
Your website store is a really great place to find the most wonderful books and artifacts from beautiful India. I have been traveling to India over the last 4 years and spend 3 months there each time staying with two Bengali families that I have adopted and they have taken me in with love and generosity. I love India. Thanks for doing the business that you do. I am an artist and, well, I got through I think the first 6 pages of the book store on your site and ordered almost 500 dollars in books... I'm in trouble so I don't go there too often.. haha.. Hari Om and Hare Krishna and Jai.. Thanks a lot for doing what you do.. Great !
