Travels In Kashmir (A Popular History of Its People, Places and Crafts)
Travels In Kashmir (A Popular History of Its People, Places and Crafts)
Description
Back of the Book

This is the story of Kashmir as it appears in travel literature and historical writings from ancient times to the twentieth century.

The first chapter provides an informal history of Kashmir-from Kalhana's twelfth-century account which includes myths and legends, to Mughal descriptions in the reigns of Akbar, Jahangir, and Aurangzeb, to Kashmir under the British.

The second chapter pieces together engaging accounts of Kashmir from travellers' tales and eccentric reports which bring the place alive while providing a picture of changing perceptions.

The third chapter describes British life in Kashmir from the accounts of men and women who lived, ruled, preached in, or passed through the region.

The last chapter describes arts, crafts, and artisanal shawl-weaving, carpets, papier mache.

Brigid Keenan is a sharp and sympathetic observer with an eye for the amusing and the poignant. Her book has long been loved by tourists, travellers, and readers of travel writing.

About the Author

Brigid Keenan was born in India. She has travelled widely all over the world and is well known for her amusing and perceptive travelogues. Her latest book is Diplomatic Baggage: The Adventures of a Trailing Spouse (2005).

Thank you very much for the Shri Yantra with Navaratna which has arrived here safely. I noticed that you seem to have had some difficulty in posting it so thank you...Posting anything these days is difficult because the ordinary postal services are either closed or functioning weakly.   I wish the best to Exotic India which is an excellent company...
