India: a land of dazzling diversity, a subcontinent of dramatic extremes—from the Himalayas in the north to the Indian Ocean in the South, from lush valleys to sere deserts, from idyllic beaches to chaotic city streets. A land of contrasts and contradictions, where millions of pilgrims bathe and bury their dead in the sacred waters of the Ganges. A land of elaborate festivals and religious ceremonies in the poorest of villages. A land of serenity and frenzy—the Taj Mahal and the teeming urban crowds; the classical arts of ancient civilizations and the cutting-edge films of Bollywood. There are many ways of becoming acquainted with this vast and bewitching land—but few as delightful or memorable as the images in this beautiful book.
