Heirloom Treasures: The Cultural Tapestry of India A compilation of selected articles from India Beckons: Volume 1

Author Name: Arunima Hoskote | Format: Paperback | Genre : Travel | Other Details

This book is an anthology of stories from the magazine India Beckons. We have picked up the best stories in the heritage, culture and travel space and made a volume on that. The stories talk about travel, culture, heritage, and traditions of Indians. India is a profoundly complex and beautiful country and, as you travel across the country, you can find some beautiful stories and places unravelling for the traveller. 

The book is for people who would like to learn more about India’s heritage and are looking for the right places in India to include in their travel plans. This book is also a good read for children who want to learn about the diverse traditional and cultural values that stitch into the very fabric of India, making it a popular tourist destination.

From Pochampally Ikat sarees to the Kuchipudi dance form, from festivals like Ugadi to a recount of the life and teachings of Adi Shankaracharya, from the celebration of Lathmaar Holi in Mathura to the spiritual journey at the Kumbh Mela in Pragyaraj (which has been declared an intangible heritage by UNESCO), this book documents India's glorious and rich heritage thoroughly. The editor of the magazine endeavours to keep the readers engaged with novel and interesting articles.
