A collection of 23 articles, the book provides unusual insights into India—her diversity, her heritage, her lifestyles. Art and agriculture, music and dance, medicine and cinema, rural India and city India, are some of the aspects that highlight the plurality of the country and the vitality and strength of her living traditions. There are fascinating glimpses of the profuse variety of Indian food, and of women artists who are shaping contemporary art in India; subjects as far apart as wildlife and crafts illustrate the essentially holistic Indian experience.

This is an India that tourists do not always see, brought to life vividly by a range of eminent Indian authors (including Pupul Jayakar, Manohar Malgaonkar and Shalini Holkar) and distinguished photographers.
