Synopsis

I is for India by Prodeepta Das

From Bollywood 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. This stunningly photographed introduction to this unique and vibrant subcontinent has been updated with new images of today's India.

Reviews

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