India occupies a strategic position in Asia, looking across the seas to Arabia and Africa on the west and to Myanmar, Malaysia and the Indonesia Archipelago on the east. Geographically, the Himalayan ranges keep India apart from the rest of Asia.

Indian population is polygenetic and is said to be the melting port of various races. Few, if any, can claim to belong to any particular stock. Nevertheless, many Indians pride themselves on their Aryan descent. Hindus, Muslims, Christians, Sikhs, Buddhists, Jains and Parsis are the major religious communities of India.

India is the land of the magnificent Taj Mahal and Ajanta Caves, it is the land of Nalanda University, one of the oldest in the world. Thus, it is the country which everyone dreams to visit.

This book, through its pictures, provides a visual dimension of the country-an invitation for readers who have not yet visited India, and a trigger for the memories of those who have done so far.
