A collection of 24 articles, the book offers fresh insights into the fascinating
mosaic of India. The panel of distinguished writers give vivid and personalized
glimpses of various aspects of Indian life, art philosophy and literature.
From the magic and mystery of the masked dance to the formal elegance
of the Mughal garden, from the awesome ritual of bronze casting to the
delicate tracery of Islamic calligraphy, from the esoteric iconography
of Himalayan Buddhist art to the swift and deadly cut-and-thrust of the
martial art, “India” brings together facets rarely seen by outsiders.
Superb colour photography enhances each article, making this book a source
of information and enjoyment to the lay-reader and tourist alike.
