The Indian sub-continent isn’t just diverse linguistically, but even in terrains. Our country has lush green valleys in Kashmir, sun-kissed Himalayan mountains, salt white flats in Kutch, scenic beaches in Goa and God’s own country, Kerala. The list is definitely humongous. Our country doesn’t just have a vast geographic spread, but even a strong human race history, with several great kings and super powers ascertaining their mark, some with great monuments, forts and even creation. Mughals, Marathas, Sikhs, Nazims, Sultans, Rajputs are several other kingdoms mushroomed in different parts of the country at different times.
Our sub-continent has several getaways and Bob Rupani, is one amongst the few who has got all his Indian travel experience in one manuscript. The man has been a travel writer and an automotive expert for more last three decades. We read this book, and were pretty impressed with it. The author has covered his vast travel experience in this book. Read further as we share our views.
As the name suggests, the book is a coffee table one and it is filled with several images of the Top 100 Destinations. The book is divided into different segments on the geography of the country. Not only is the book rich with colourful images, but it also several advises on the Dos and Don’ts. It also helps you get connected to various hotels in different locations depending on what you are looking for, and how good is it. What could you expect at xyz? The author has put in all efforts to share the best possible information in the minimal amount of text.
We have been to several destinations that are mentioned in the book, and surprising a majority of evidence shared was unknown to us. Now, the team will consider this book as the basic guide to get sketch a basic plan for a travelogue that we do in future. We thank Bob, for sharing this book with us, and it was indeed an eye-opener.
Being a tech freak, we generally don’t review books, but this is a special case. This isn’t one of those coffee table books that one would see only on the shelf of a bookstore. This is one that people will buy. It doesn’t just have good images, but also rich content that could be your guide, helping to prepare a rough plan for a particular destination. This is what differentiates it from the regular ones, as per my learning I have never come across any coffee table book that is informative. They are generally praises for the products it speaks off, and it misses the personal touch. We are glad to have Bob, who has written a book that we are pretty impressed with the information. Also, we will be glad if we can get an iPad addition, with a more detailed guide on things to be done. Bob has also written a few more books on travel in India and they are on sale too.
