The origins of this book of contemplation spring from the long and arduous tour around India undertaken by the author's father back in 1965. The more he began to experience this great country, the more he wanted to move beyond merely describing its landscape and the treasures from its glorious past. His aim was to expand his interpretation of the world of India into a wholly new mode of thinking and thereby to understand humanity as a whole.
The author has now completed the book by adding his own contemporary thoughts and comparisons about the soul of India as a complement to his father's work.
A message to you all from a simple man: this book does not fit neatly into any existing categories. This is INDIA. And nothing else.
