Quantity:

In this entertaining and witty mix of history, diary and the ramifications of the modern age the story of the land of Karnataka is told through the eyes of many people.  Following the paths gazed by these eyes, Mores's personal experiences bring out the feel and smell of the place, but more, the hope.

Dom begins in the dense woods roamed by wild tigers and panthers. He begins with a little native boy whose large eyes open and see his changing country with mild curiosity and at times shocking fear. Dom Moraes borrows this pair of eyes to see his world the way he sees it, and then tell you a story.

The story of the land of Karnataka is told through the eyes of many people in this book. Following the paths gazed by these eyes, Moraes's personal experiences bring out the feel and smell of the place, but more, the hope.

Karnataka has layers of culture, civilization and history and it is this, the enthralling and enigmatic features of this ancient-modern state. Dom tells the story with the ease of a preoccupied traveller who shifts between past and present because he believes they cannot be separate.

Watching the roads and rivers that loop and whorl through the land, he travels through the rivers that flow constantly through the minds of its people. And more importantly, through his own. Until his eyes become a sum of theirs and of that little native boy's when the beginning began.

About the Author:

Dom Moraes published nine volumes and won major literary awards like the Hawthornden Prize in England and the Lamont and Goldfinch prizes in the US. Moraes also wrote extensively for newspapers and magazines in India and abroad and produced scripts for a number of TV documentaries for the BBC and ITV in Britain. With Sarayu Srivatsa he co-authored 2 books and 2 documentary film scripts before his untimely death on 2nd June 2004.

TESTIMONIALS

Your personal e-mail reply answered my question about the shipping rate and touched my heart with the description about your spiritual, ecological, and ethical commitment to justice and planetary care. I have forwarded your note to friends in the U.S. and look forward to receiving these books, which I will use to educate my daughter and to use as examples in my writing about environmental children's literature. Thank you for the work you do!...
