The book charts a journey around the globe. While the first part covers the exciting destinations of India, the second part tries to cover a wider canvas. The coup de maitre reads like a backpacker's fantasy. From almost climbing the Mount Everest to encountering the indigenous people of Andaman and Nicobar Islands, from paying obeisance at various popular and lesser known temples and shrines in Himachal Pradesh and Garhwal to wandering in the deserts of Ladakh, the author endeavours to give a taste of everything Indian. His unquenchable thirst for adventure takes him further. Metaphorically thawing the ice sheet between the contemporary people and the Inunits in Greenland, the author gives you a world view of his experiences facing inhospitable weather in the icy Patagonia, getting lost in the romanticism of the Wadi Rum and Petra, and watching in awe the mighty lguassu Falls.
