Taken together, these essays were full of reliable information on India and her culture. Tourists and travelers eager to know and understand the diversified cultures and traditions of India would have been benefitted if this collection was published then as a book. Retrieving from the torn pages of The times of India we bring out this book in order to introduce the 21st century Indians to their own culture and heritage. Taken together, these essays bring forth a wonder called India with her diversified cultures and festivals. That it comes with Principal places of India adds value to the edition.
