Gods, Giants & the Geography of India

Publisher: Hachette India
Author: Nalini Ramachandran

A pirate king finds his plans foiled by a formidable force of nature. A majestic mountain range emerges from a demon’s tantrum. A sea keeps a city safely hidden in its deep waters. The avatar of a god gives a forest its name… Long ago, before science came up with explanations for the events that occurred in nature, people turned to stories to make sense of the wondrous workings of the natural world. Zigzagging through myths, folklore, local history and geological theories, this book draws fascinating connections between ancient tales and the science behind the spectacular geography of India.
