Each of our characters introduce different themes according to their respective activities and interests. They each represent composites of real people we have known throughout our 30 years of itinerant life together and all thre... View more info

A lifelong traveller with an admitted ‘predilection for unlovely things’, Roger Willemsen has tramped over five continents in search of the ends of the earth. Some are literally that—geographical and topographical extremities like the Cape of Good Hope, the Himalaya, the volcanoes of Kamchatka, and the North Pole. Other endpoints take Willemsen’s psychological endurance to breaking point—the foetid warrens of a Mumbai brothel; a deathbed vigil in a hospital ward in Minsk, Belarus; an afternoon spent under Luca Signorelli’s fresco, The Last Judgement, in Orvieto, Italy, in a futile ...

Among the various travelogues, Hiuen Tsiang's Si-yu-ki or Records of the Western World, is regarded to be the most valuable source-book for the study of ancient Indian history. Si-yu-ki is not merely a travel-diary recording Hiuen Tsing's visit to various places in India and the places en route, but is also an account of the conditions of India during the seventh century. This journey was undertaken by Hiuen Tsiang primarily with a view to visiting the Buddhist places of pilgrimage and to seek answers to the questions agitating his mind.

Yuan Chwang or Hiuen Tsiang, the famous Chinese traveler, commands such a high seat of eminence that he is styled as one of the three mirrors that reflect Indian Buddhism in the country of his birth. To us in India too, he is no ordinary mirror, for had it not been for the records which he so diligently maintained of his visit to India during AD 629 to 645, a good part of our past, of our history, that too of one of the golden periods of this land, would have been lost in the limbo of oblivion. To Yuan Chwang goes the gratitude of all Indians as well as Indian historians. The work in which the... View more info

Is a physical journey the necessary path to spiritual evolution? Kailash Manasarovar: A Sacred Journey dwells on this question and perceives the possibility for three stages of inner transformation during the journey, using the Devi Mahatmayam as a metaphor.The journey shows that it takes just a shift in perspective to behold the divine in the mundane. By eroding the conditioning of our essence, the journey helps us connect with a pure centre, marking the beginning of interactions which are actions, rather than mere reactions to situations. From this point on, it is in maintaining a height... View more info

More hard-hitting than either of his previous books, From the Holy Mountain is driven by indignation. While leavened with his characteristic jauntiness and humour, it is also profoundly shocking. Time and time again in the details of Dalrymple’s discoveries I found myself asking: why do we not know this?
