- I'INDE - DESTINATION EXOTIQUE - French - India Exotic Destination
DetailsA book of this magnitude has taken years in making Scores of flights and numerous taxi rides helped me cover the exotic parts of this fascinating sub-continent. The going was great but can hardly be defined as a bed of roses !At times temple courtyards would be blistering hot underfoot, making it difficult to walk. At other times freezing Himalayan winds caused one's hands to become numb; or the weather would be so hot and humid that I would wonder if the film in the camera would meld!On one occasion when my body felt that it could take no more, I was ceremoniously carried to the mountain top shrine by eight 'doliwalas'; all in all it was exhilarating, challenging and kept me on a never ending 'high'. To put the entire kaleidoscope of India into a limited number of pages is always a challenge but, even with these limitation, the feel of India her varied landscape., multi-religious society and fascinating monuments is what this book is all about.The real India often remains buried under the news of natural disaster and poverty and I do not deny their existence but a great deal of the other India that I have photographed for this book exists too, and in plenty.To make the book more reader friendly it is laid out by destinations and for the visitor it will evoke magical memories of their trip and tempt the uninitiated to this museum of culture and history. Finally I hope in some way the pages of this book transmit to you some of the excitement and satisfaction I experienced while making it.ABOUT THE AUTHOR: Tarun Chopra was born in Delhi but his formative years were spent in Jaipur, wherein began a passion for colour and pageantry of Rajasthan.
