Quantity:

Since the dawn of humanity, Ganges-Ganga-the sacred river of India, born in the higher Himalayan realms, has inspired the imagination of mankind. In this book, the author invites us on an initiatory voyage to the sources of the revered river at Gaumukh, passing through the principal holy cities of Uttaranchal (Haridwar, Rishikesh, Gangotri, Badrinath) and following the prestigious junctions where the powerful affluent mixes with the venerated river. A crowned path in the Garhwal Himalayas, seized within a cosmic time of myths and mythology, symbols of an eminent age that form the plinth of a modern India.

This book is a metaphorical voyage where words lend to images in an enchanting presentation of these high recesses of reverence and spiritual fervour. It is an invitation to a journey on the banks of Ganga in the Himalayas, where, since time immemorial, the mystical rites of water and fire are celebrated each day.

Mireille Josephine Guezennec shares with us her enthusiastic joy of a poetic and mythical meeting with the mystical river.

About the Translator:

Vikas Harish, Museologist and Art Historian, has won many prestigious fellowships for his research in cultural interpretation in the UK and France. He combines a passion to teach along with the organization of significant exhibitions. He represents India on the Executive Council of the commonwealth Association of Museums.

Fluent in many languages, this translation is a result of his close association with the French culture, with the writing style of the author and, above all, with the wealth that comprises Indian mythology and culture.
