Synopsis

I is for India Big book by Prodeepta Das

From Bullock cart to Peacock, from Namaskar to Tea, this photographic alphabet is a celebration of India in all its vast and colourful diversity. Prodeepta Das explores India's customs, religions and culture, focusing both on the rhythms of the bustling cities, and on day-to-day village life. A stunningly photographed introduction to this unique and vibrant subcontinent.

Reviews

Beautifully photographed pictorial alphabet which replaces Kiplingesque view of the Subcontinent with vibrant images of contemporary Indian life. Independent This book is a refreshing change from the many detailed, often tedious, accounts of life in a foreign country. Junior Education Informative and a useful addition to the study of the Indian subcontinent. www.writeaway.org.uk
