Description

About the Author

Jerry Pinto lives in Mumbai as he has done for all the forty-something years of his life. This means that he does not have a car since his city has the finest public transport system in the country. This also means his lungs are black inside because the air is polluted. He often visits other cities because he is a journalist and works with Meljol, an NGO that works for the rights of children who don't have food, shelter, education and the like, but he rushes back home quickly and when he gets to Mumbai, takes a deep breath of its dirty air and sighs fatly. (He weighs more than 90 kilos.) He says, 'If you live in a city that has not been covered by this book, come on, write a chapter of your own, and stick it in at the back.' He has also written a book called A Bear for Felicia (Puffin).

Rahul Srivastava is involved in urban issues and knowledge practices. He writes fiction for younger readers. He is the author of the novel Murder on Kaandoha Hill (Puffin) and several short stories. He co-authors a blog and can be contacted on rahulgiairoors.org, He is based in Goa.

Thiru, UK
Thank You very much for this wonderful opportunity for helping people to acquire the spiritual treasures of Hinduism at such an affordable price.
Ramakrishna, Australia
I really LOVE you! Wonderful selections, prices and service. Thank you!
Tina, USA
This is to inform you that the shipment of my order has arrived in perfect condition. The actual shipment took only less than two weeks, which is quite good seen the circumstances. I waited with my response until now since the Buddha statue was a present that I handed over just recently. The Medicine Buddha was meant for a lady who is active in the healing business and the statue was just the right thing for her. I downloaded the respective mantras and chants so that she can work with the benefits of the spiritual meanings of the statue and the mantras. She is really delighted and immediately fell in love with the beautiful statue. I am most grateful to you for having provided this wonderful work of art. We both have a strong relationship with Buddhism and know to appreciate the valuable spiritual power of this way of thinking. So thank you very much again and I am sure that I will come back again.
Bernd, Spain
