All my attempts to classify this book proved futile. A scholarly view of scientific mode dissecting the anthropological evolution over nearly a millenium, or a novelist, rather a painter of words, discovering the microscopic fragments of history, weaving subtle bonds with the present. A literary work of a social antrhopologist, or a research work of a novelist, either way it is a unique moving book with universal appeal, revealing the common bond that unites mankind, over nearly a millenium and a few tens of thousands of miles, and succeeds in what it sets out to achieve, to show that uniformity and universality of humankind, something the author believes in himself. One word to describe it, BEAUTIFUL, that is what I felt after finishing it.
