An authentic interpretation of over 400 Indian concepts and practices derived from a personal exploration of India, over a period of 50 years. 'Padayatra' is a journey on foot and each selected concept and practice is treated as a stepping-stone in a journey to understanding what India is all about. The book is a sensitive and sophisticated introduction to India for an intelligent and serious readership, and will also be invaluable as a reference text for libraries, cultural exchange agencies, business orientation courses-especially for those anticipating an extended interaction with India.
