8 Balochistan: At a Crossroads

Willem Marx & Marc Wattrelot

Niyogi Books, New Delhi, India, 2014, 9789381523858, First Edition, Hardcover, New, New, 30.5 x 25 Cm 
Balochistan at a Crossroads is a captivating account of Willem Marxs travels in Balochistan. He recounts his adventures here as he goes into the backcountry to conduct some exclusive interviews. He confesses that although his travels were exhausting and sometimes very dangerous, the countrys landscape was endlessly beautiful in its emptiness. The list of people he had to interview contained the name of one of Irans most wanted terrorists and a ragtag militant organisation, living in the isolated mountain valleys, which was aligned against the mighty Pakistani Army. He traversed broken and almost invisible trucking routes through the desert at night in order to complete the interviews. The history, topography and people of Balochistan enthralled the author and his photojournalist friend Marc Wattrelot, who managed to capture spectacularly emotive scenes, which have gone unseen by most casual visitors to this less-known corner of this world. The author feels that Balochistan is reminiscent of a charming past, but when he met the people, he realised it is the future to which they were all looking at, often with apprehension.

Bombay in the Days of Queen Anne: Being an account of the settlement and Burnell's Narrative of his Adventures in Bengal, John Burnell
9 Bombay in the Days of Queen Anne: Being an account of the settlement and Burnell's Narrative of his Adventures in Bengal

John Burnell

Munshiram Manoharlal Publishers Pvt. Ltd., New Delhi, India, 1997, 81-215-0775-8 / 9788121507752, Reprint, Cloth, New, New, 14 Cms x 22 Cms 
Burnell's description of Bombay takes the form of two letters to his father. The first one is dated 12 May, 1710 and second one is undated. Bombay that Burnell knew had much deteriorated from the dissensions between the Old and New East India Companies. The union had taken place in 1709 and its beneficial effect can scarcely have been felt in Bombay in the following year 1710 when Burnell served there. Burnell in this narrative gives an account of the government then; account of the troops in Bombay; account of the Dongrey Fort which he commanded; plan to convert Bombay from seven islands to one; description of castles and various outlying forts. Burnell is accurate also in his observance of the daily life of Bombay; of the methods of fisherman in the harbour; of the ways in which the land was prepared in the hot weather and early monsoons for rice; and of the salt works along the eastern shore of Island where he noted the technicalities of the whole process, revealing him as a good exponent of popular sciences. Part II narrates his personal adventures in Bengal, where he arrived in November 1712, after being cashiered at Madras. Though incomplete, it has several features of value, especially his description of Danish and Dutch settlements and of Hugli, with its suburbs of Bandel. John Burnell's narratives are simple in style and his presentation of facts and comments are straightforward, giving a wealth of details along with accurate measurements and correct topographical descriptions.

11 Chittorgarh : The Braveheart Of Rajputana

Dharmendar Kanwar

Niyogi Books, New Delhi, India, 2011, 9789381523025, First Edition, Paperback, New, 18 x 21 Cm Abhijit Singh Jhala 
The fort of Chittorgarh stands elevated over a 180 meter high hillock and covers a massive area of 700 acres. The antiquity of Chittorgarh is difficult to trace, but it is believed to have been built by the Maurya rulers in the 7th century AD. Chittorgarh: The Braveheart of Rajputana is yet another attempt to capture the essence of this magnificent fort and record and acknowledge the deeds of courage and valour of its inhabitants. Many books have been written on Chittorgarh but there comes a point in a writer 's account when they find themselves at a loss for words... because, no matter how clever you are with your choice of words, and how well you are able to record the events, there is always a feeling that you are not doing justice to the glorious history of the fort and its larger-than-life people. The subject seems to overtake you with its sheer incomparability. Printed Page: 236 with numerous colour illustrations. 037538

19 From the Holy Mountain: A Journey in the Shadow of Byzantium

William Dalrymple

Penguin, New Delhi, India, 2004, 0-14-303108-2 / 9780143031086, First Indian Edition, Paperback, New, New, 13 Cms x 20 Cms 
‘In his third book William Dalrymple has dug deep to present the case of the Middle East’s downtrodden Christians. 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? The sense of unsung tragedy accumulates throughout the chapters of this book-From the Holy Mountain is the most rewarding sort of travel book, combining flashes of lightly-worn scholarship with a powerful sense of place and the immediacy of the best journalism. But more than that it is a passionate cri de coeur for a forgotten people which few readers will be able to resist?Philip Marsden, Spectator. Printed Pages: 504. 017689

20 Himalayan Wonderland: Travels in Lahaul and Spiti

Manohar Singh Gill (M.S. Gill)

Penguin, New Delhi, India, 2010, 0670084131 / 9780670084135, First Edition, Hardcover, New, New, 15 x 23 Cm 
In the summer of 1962, a restless young Indian administrator, Manohar Singh Gill, made an arduous journey from the north Indian plains to the farthest reaches of the Indian Himalayas—the Lahaul and Spiti valleys—and spent a year there, living and working amongst the people. Gill went on to a distinguished career in the civil services and government, but his experience of the relentless beauty of these spectacular Himalayan deserts and the generosity of the people of this land changed him for life. Part memoir, part travel book and part anthropology, Himalayan Wonderland is a witty, opinionated account of Gill’s lifelong affair with this extraordinary region. The book, however, is much more than one man’s account of a place ?it is a hopeful and enlightening view of the practice of administration and the joy of working with people. Illustrated with more than forty photographs taken by Gill himself, and including detailed contour maps and information on trekking routes in Lahaul and Spiti, this is a remarkably illuminating and accessible account of this faraway land—from the 1960s, when few knew about the place, to today’s unpredictable world of receding glaciers and lost cultures.

Niyogi Books, New Delhi, India, 2012, 8192091279 / 9788192091273, First Edition, Paperback, New, 15 x 23 Cm 
Harry Potter’s Hogwarts is a magical place. But it’s an unreal one: it does not exist. Hugh and Colleen Gantzer have discovered magical places in India that are real and accessible. What is the origin of the fear that a monster lies beneath the surface of the high, blue, lake of Pangong Tso? Who was the Englishman who carved out his own kingdom in the Himalayas? What gourmet dish was created by a ruler to feed his famished subjects? What is the epic tale of the white shrine where the weapons of a martial saint are revered? This is not a travelogue, or a guide book, or even a retelling of ancient folklore. It is, however, a little bit of all three. It is a conversation with two well informed people who have travelled, and questioned, and analysed. They are convinced that every legend, every custom has grown out of a hard core of fact, a historical event whose impact was so great that it was branded into the racial memory of the community. It then became encased in multiple layers of myth. In The Alluring North, while describing their experiences in their gently evocative style, Hugh and Colleen Gantzer also uncover many fascinating gems of other, enduring, realities that glitter within our ‘intriguing India’.

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 heightened awareness of one’s emotions, memories, surroundings, companions in the journey that the journey itself could become meaningful.

I now carry on the description farther west into Persia, and describe each district of Khurasan and Sistam in detail, from the Kurd and Turkoman country along the Russian frontier on the north, to the countries of Baluchistan on the Indian frontier to the south. A full account of the time I spent amongst the Goklan and Yamut Turkomans, hitherto comparatively unknown; their life and character is described, and an account is given of my trip to the source of river Gurgan, never before visited by any European travelers. An account is also given of the Afghan troops and soldiers as I saw them at Kandahar, Farah, and Heart; of the Persian troops and officials; and of the various tribes on the Afghan and Persian frontiers.

39 Mystics of the East

Osho

Niyogi Books, New Delhi, India, 2013, 9789381523544, First Edition, Paperback, New, 15 x 23 Cm 
The East has been for centuries -or perhaps forever – the holy, the sacred source of life. Not only the sun rises in the East, a Gautam Buddha also rises in the East. The East has produced thousands of mystics. In comparison, the West is very poor. Just as the West has created great scientists, the East has produced great explorers of one’s own being. Still, in its most degraded state, in its darkest era, the East attracts the seeker – almost like a magnet. Those who want to seek the truth, those who want to know themselves, suddenly feel an attraction towards the East. Printed Page: 254. 037582

46 Si-Yu-Ki or the Buddhist Records of the Western World: trans. From the Chinese of Hiuen Tsiang AD 629, 2 vols. (bd in 1)

Samuel Beal

Munshiram Manoharlal Publishers Pvt. Ltd., New Delhi, India, 2014, 81-215-0741-3 / 9788121507417, Third Edition, Hardcover, New, New, 15 x 23 Cm 
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. He was inspired in this by the recollection of similar journeys undertaken centuries ago by his predecessors, Fa-hien, Sung Yun and many others. Born at Loyang in the year 600, Hiuen Tsiang set out on this journey to the regions west of China and to India at the age of twentynine (629) from Chang' an in West China. Travelling by the northern route which took him to Turfan, Kara Shahr, Lake Issyk Kul, Tashkent, Samarkand, Balkh and Bamiyan, he arrived in the Kingdom of Gandhara towards the end of the year 630. There-from he proceeded to India and practically traversed the entire country going as far south as Kanchi and Nasik, Valabhi and Multan in the west. During his sojourn he spent nearly eight years, from 635 to 643, in Harsha's dominions and stayed for about fifteen months at Nalanda, learning the Yogachara doctrine which he afterwards enunciated in a book on his return to his country. Early in 645 he reached China, returning by the southern route passing through Kashgar, Yarkand, Khotan and Lop-nor. On his return to China, where he was received with great honour and bestowed the title Master of the Law, he took to the work of compiling an account of his travels. In the present volume, Samuel Beal has included, for the sake to completeness, Travels of Fa-hian or Fo-Kwo-ki. The Hwei-Sang and the preface to the Si-Yu-Ki by Chang Yueh.

Sindh and the Races that Inhabit the Valley of the Indus: with notices of the topography and history of the Province, Richard F. Burton
48 Sindh and the Races that Inhabit the Valley of the Indus: with notices of the topography and history of the Province

Richard F. Burton

Munshiram Manoharlal Publishers Pvt. Ltd., New Delhi, India, 1998, 81-215-0823-1 / 9788121508230, Reprint, Cloth, New, New, 14 Cms x 22 Cms 
The present work is the culmination of Richard Burton's five-years stay in Sindh, where he had the opportunity to learn the manner and customs, the domestic details, and the religious opinions and language of the people among, and with whom, he lived. He found the previous descriptions of Sindh and its inhabitants of little use; they were either too popular in nature, or written with a view of imparting a superficial knowledge of the language. Richard Burton has narrated in this work long descriptions of the studies, religion and ceremonies peculiar to the race inhabiting Sindh, the first specimens of language, and notices of the literature ever printed, and also the first detailed account of native habits and customs, manner and ceremonies. This work would be useful to not only linguists, ethnographers, and historians but also general readers who are fond of travelling in the past. Printed Pages: 430 with 1 map. 029207

A comprehensive introduction to "one of the world 's best kept secrets. " Fringed by the two great rivers of Central Asia, the Oxus and the Jaxartes, Tajikistan can boast not only of breathtaking mountain scenery, but also of 3,000 years of history. The land where Alexander the Great fought desperately against the Scythian nomads, his most formidable adversaries, Tajikistan is an ancient cradle of Persian culture. Originally, it was the home of the Sogdians, the famous trading peoples of the Silk Road; eventually this country was at the heart of the 19th century 'Great Game ', a place of contention for the adventurers and spies of Britain and Imperial Russia. Now recovering from the misfortunes of the 20th century--the travails of Soviet rule and several years of civil war--it is able to offer visitors not only its legacies of cultural and ethnic diversity, but also unparalleled opportunities for adventure. 100 color photos, 13 maps & diagrams.
