Beyond the Dunes: Journeys in Rajasthan
Penguin; New Delhi, India; 2007; 0143063065 / 9780143063063; First Edition; Paperback; New; 
A must-have for the armchair traveller and perfect incentive for a weekend break in the desert The many-splendoured tourist Mecca, legendary for its romance, royalty and undulating sand dunes, is explored and examined in this sparkling account of the author’s many rendezvous with Rajasthan. In her many avatars as starry-eyed tourist, harried producer of documentary films, lover of music and someone who realizes that there is much more to the desert province than picture-perfect palaces, Juhi Sinha travels to forgotten towns and cities, while also discovering unseen facets of familiar destinations. What emerges is an affectionate portrait of a land and people who simultaneously live in the past and the present. The author recounts in vivid anecdotes the highlights of her numerous journeys as she traverses the state on holidays and film shoots: from the murals of Shekhawati to the ‘Sonar’ Qila of Jaisalmer, from the luxurious Heritage Hotels that dot the map, to the barren wastes near Pokaran, stopping along the way to relate the ballads of Moomal—the princess whose doomed love story is still recounted—and to introduce us to unforgettable characters like Padam Singh, the rickshawallah who doubles as a bird-watching guide, and Nek Muhammad, the folk singer and his troupe who star in her film. Erstwhile royalty, feisty actors, colourful guides, friendly shopkeepers, obstinate bureaucrats come together in this part travelogue part personal memoir, keeping you entertained till the last page.

Bismillah Khan: The Maestro from Benaras
Niyogi Books; New Delhi, India; 2011; 8189738917 / 9788189738914; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
“Bismillah Khan – Maestro from Benaras” is a book that gives the reader an insightful look into the home and heart, muse and music of one of the greatest artists that India has produced. It traces his journey from the small town of Dumraon to Benaras and thence to the world. The book follows Bismillah Khan as he grows from child to man, shagird to ustad, pupil to legend-from his early days when he charged five rupees for a programme to the days when each performance commanded anything between five to ten lakh rupees. Bismillah Khan’s life is played out against the streets, galis and muhallas of Benaras, its ghats, temples, mehfils and musicians, bringing to life an era that has since passed. The author recreates in delightful detail the moves and manners of twentieth century Benaras, its wealthy aristocrats and courtesans and the many artists who interacted with both. The colourful strands of Benarasi society are seen as the perfect background for the extraordinary genius of Bismillah Khan. The book also lovingly portrays the whims and foibles of Bismillah Khan—an artist, whose stature as a musical legend could never quite overshadow the wit, humour and charisma of the man. Printed Pages: 176 with 103 colour and b/w photographs. 036466
