Himalaya: Adventures, Meditations, Life

4.8 out of 5
Publisher Speaking Tiger Publishing Pvt Ltd
Editor Ruskin Bond and Namita Gokhale
Synopsis The bestselling and critically acclaimed collection of writings on the Himalaya, now in paperback with two new essays With over forty essays, this comprehensive volume brings together a dazzling range of voices in an unparalleled panorama. Here you will find stories of great ascents and descents; the madness of war on the ‘world’s highest battlefield’ and the personal costs soldiers must pay for it; tales of exploratory derring-do; and a mutiny up on a mountain. A seeker has an intense spiritual experience on Mount Kailas, another among shamans on a mountaintop in Nepal; and, looking for the snow leopard in Ladakh, an author finds himself. A resident of a Sherpa village writes a heartfelt account of the aftermath of an avalanche which killed porters and climbers on Everest; and residents of Langtang record an oral history of the earthquake which wiped out their village. A matriarch describes her life and family in Almora of a bygone time; a prisoner in Dehra Dun jail draws solace from visits by birds and small animals; and the fragrance of lime makes a traveller’s night in a remote Garhwal village memorable for all time. Edited by Ruskin Bond, India’s most-loved writer, and acclaimed novelist Namita Gokhale, this anthology—now in paperback with two new essays—spans the entire range, from the foothills to the highest peaks, and from its easternmost to its westernmost ends. Himalaya will keep you riveted.
