The duo chance upon the story of Bon Bibi and Shah Jangolee in the swamps of the Sundarbans as also the natural historical and cultural wonders that dot the Indian landscape. This book compels you to experience the hope and despair misery and triumph failures and innovations of 'real India' - an India that remains invisible to most Indians and does not make it to the front pages of newspapers and has not been captured by the roving cameras of the 24x7 media channels. 9789350291306
