Splendours of Rajasthan The four southern states of India extend across coastal plainsand rocky plateaux, river valleys, tropical forests and mountainousterrain. They encompass a range of cultural patterns, religiousbeliefs and styles of life which vary as widely as the landscape.The sheer wealth of experiences that South India offers makes itespecially difficult to do justice to this extraordinary part ofthe Indian subcontinent in a single book. Nevertheless, S. Muthiahand Rupinder Khullar have succeeded in providing a richly texturedintroduction to the many faces of South India. S. Muthiah haswritten a lively and informative introduction to the four southernstates of Tamil Nadu, Karnataka, Andhra Pradesh and Kerala and theUnion Territory of Pondicherry. His formidable knowledge andunerring eye for the telling detail have resulted in an excellenttext which is superbly illustrated by the photographs. Rupinder Khullar has managed to capture the essence of thesouthern states with vibrant immediacy. Short of actully smellingthe fragrance of sandalwood and feeling the salt-laden sea breezeson the coast, this delightful book brings to the reader all theflavour and colour of South India.
