Travels In Kashmir (A Popular History of Its People, Places and Crafts)
Travels In Kashmir (A Popular History of Its People, Places and Crafts)
Description
Back of the Book

This is the story of Kashmir as it appears in travel literature and historical writings from ancient times to the twentieth century.

The first chapter provides an informal history of Kashmir-from Kalhana's twelfth-century account which includes myths and legends, to Mughal descriptions in the reigns of Akbar, Jahangir, and Aurangzeb, to Kashmir under the British.

The second chapter pieces together engaging accounts of Kashmir from travellers' tales and eccentric reports which bring the place alive while providing a picture of changing perceptions.

The third chapter describes British life in Kashmir from the accounts of men and women who lived, ruled, preached in, or passed through the region.

The last chapter describes arts, crafts, and artisanal shawl-weaving, carpets, papier mache.

Brigid Keenan is a sharp and sympathetic observer with an eye for the amusing and the poignant. Her book has long been loved by tourists, travellers, and readers of travel writing.

About the Author

Brigid Keenan was born in India. She has travelled widely all over the world and is well known for her amusing and perceptive travelogues. Her latest book is Diplomatic Baggage: The Adventures of a Trailing Spouse (2005).

Testimonials

Great service. Keep on helping the people
Armando, Australia
I bought DVs supposed to receive 55 in the set instead got 48 and was in bad condition appears used and dusty. I contacted the seller to return the product and the gave 100% credit with apologies. I am very grateful because I had bought and will continue to buy products here and have never received defective product until now. I bought paintings saris..etc and always pleased with my purchase until now. But I want to say a public thank you to whom it may concern for giving me the credit. Thank you. Navieta.

I am a long-time customer of Exotic India for gifts for me and friends and family. We are never disappointed. Your jewelry craftspeople are very skilled artists. You must treasure them. And we always look forward to the beautifully decorated boxes you use to ship your jewelry.

I have always enjoyed browsing through the website. I was recently in south India, and was amazed to note that the bronze statues made in Kumbakonam and Thanjavur had similar pricing as Exotic India.
Heramba, USA
Thank you very much for your services. I ordered a Dhanvantari Deity from this site and it came quickly and in good condition. Now Sri Dhanvantari ji is worshipped regularly before seeing each client and in the offering of our medicinal products. Thanks again.
