Exploring India from the time of the Indus Valley Civilisation to its modern urban cities, India: A Land of Contrasts paints a vivid picture of the country’s past and present. The book makes an interesting use of the country’s topography to demarcate distinct ways of Indian life, and to highlight the diversity that has made it a haven for tourists from across the world. Modern India today is an amalgamation of the old and the new, where remnants of the past—palaces, forts, and other age-old structures, created by mighty rulers—co-exist with the hi-tech creations of India’s ambitious youth. This marriage of the old and new is an all-pervasive theme of this book, where cities and cultures, rites and rituals, livelihood and lifestyles, reflect this co-existence. With breathtaking images of India, the book serves as the perfect appetiser for those who would like to partake of India’s effervescence and lose themselves in her myriad offerings, even if momentarily. USP • Encapsulates the diversity that is India • Eye-catching photographs • A treasure trove of Information on India’s past • A vivid portrayal of the young and enterprising population • Captures the spirit of a nation that finely balances tradition and modernity.Printed Pages: 512.
