2 Hugh & Colleen Gantzer (Authors)
Intriguing India: The Alluring North
Niyogi Books; New Delhi, India; 8192091279 / 9788192091273; Softcover; New; 
What is the origin of the fear that a monster lies beneath the surface of the high, blue, lake of Pangong Tso? Who was the Englishman who carved out his own kingdom in the Himalayas? What gourmet dish was created by a ruler to feed his famished subjects? What is the epic tale of the white shrine where the weapons of a martial saint are revered?This is not a travelogue, or a guide book, or even a retelling of ancient folklore. It is a little bit of all three. It is a conversation with two well informed people who have travelled, and questioned, and analysed. They are convinced that every legend, every custom has grown out of a hard core of fact, a historical event whose impact was so great that it was branded into the racial memory of the community. It then became encased in multiple layers of myth.Printed Pages: 172 with 105 colour photographs. 106614

Intriguing India: The Historic South
Niyogi Books; New Delhi, India; 9789381523414; Softcover; New; 
In their travels around southern India, Hugh and Colleen Gantzer look beyond history. What is the link between Daroji in tropical Karnataka and the mysterious beast that prowls the snowy wastes of the High Himalayas? Why were boulders carved as temples of varied architectural styles in an ancient port? Did an extreme rural sport in Tamil Nadu originate thousands of years ago in the Mediterranean lands? Did supermen walk the earth in the sixth century BC and has the image of one been captured in stone? This is not a book about history or archaeology or anthropology or any of the other very specialized sciences concerned with delving into the past, weighing and measuring it all, and presenting it as the mind of the historian sees it. History is, too often, his-story: the view of a specialist conforming to the rigours of his profession. The Gantzers ask you to join them as they let their intuitions roam freely to unravel the mysteries of Intriguing India.Printed Pages: 180 with 121 colour photographs. 106615

Intriguing India: The Vibrant West
Niyogi Books; New Delhi, India; 9789381523100; Softcover; New; 
Western India is Big. It’s Bollywood and Big Business, and Gujarat and its Big Achievements, Goa and its Big Beaches, Madhya Pradesh and its Big Heart. But is that all it is: Big Billboards and Big Hype? Hugh and Colleen Gantzer take a Big Breath and step behind the glare and the glitter and the razzmatazz. They discover an intriguing world: a crater lake dug by a Thing from Outer Space; a cool, green, hill-station where no cars are allowed; deep wells that are beautifully sculpted water pavilions; the only wilderness in the world where the rare Asian Lion still roams free; a walled town in the desert with curiously painted houses; a sacred city where Time is worshipped.This is not just a travel guide. This is an informal conversation with two people who like discovering new places, having new experiences in old places, asking questions, and giving their own, often provocative, answers.Printed Pages: 208 with 210 colour photographs. 106616

Lynsdale Raj
Niyogi Books; New Delhi, India; 9789383098583; Softcover; New; 
John Lynsdale was born to be the King of England. Deprived of his birthright by a weak father and a scheming woman, John follows his repetitive dream to India, a land of opportunity riven by little men squabbling for power. In Britain, too, the restless Scots want their own king, the common people are miserable and the hostile kingdoms of Europe are a looming threat across the narrow English Channel..John Lynsdale’s world, 300 years ago, was much like ours today. This is the story of his adventures, the intrigues he faced in the multinational East India Company, his many loves and mystical awakening.In Fort St. George, Madras, he encounters the cold, ruthless, Norbert Kline and, together, they are besieged in a monsoon-drenched fortress and emerge victorious. But when he falls in love with the beautiful Armenian woman, Ann Hawkenian, the petty-minded expatriates in the Fort spurn him for choosing a ‘country-born’ wife. Lured to Calcutta by a suave mercenary agent, John Lynsdale and Ann then set off to find their dream kingdom in the Himalayas. This is John Lynsdale’s swashbuckling story, but is his story History? Perhaps. Sometimes fact and fiction converge curiously.Printed Pages: 288. 106550
