I love reading books. Books are my best friends. They entertain me, guide me, transcends me to a different world, fulfill me and direct me towards spirituality. Some religious books act as a fuel for my soul.
Few things never lose its shine and value and can be great hand-me -downs, books are one of them. I BELIEVE BOOKS CAN BE PASSED DOWN FROM ONE GENERATION TO ANOTHER.
Today we are supposed to write the blurb for the book jacket I would write. I don’t know whether I would ever write a book but the thought can be expressed in few lines of a book which I would write ( if ever I will )
The Himalaya is not a not a mere mountain range for Hindus. It is a belief, a faith for them. It may be a tourist destination for the world but for certain group of people it is the Abode of Gods, Abode of Lord Shiva. For ecologists it is a place of variegated richness, a source of some of the greatest rivers, home to an amazing variety of flora and fauna while for spiritual souls it is a dream pilgrimage. From times immemorial, there has been a mystique, an irresistible majestic beauty, a universal magnetic appeal about Himalaya. The highest mountain in the world has many moods, many facets which continue to mean different things for different people.
This book is an attempt to penetrate the mysterious Himalayas to unravel its mysteries. You will be seeking spiritual salvation in the lap of nature. I hope the book will not only be instrumental in acquainting the readers with the grandeur and natural beauty of snow peaked ranges, but will also awaken in them for nature and mother earth. They will appreciate the divine, unfathomable essence of the Himalayas.
