India’s Legendary East Coast
INDIA’S LEGENDARY EAST COAST
by P.K. De
India’s Legendary East Coast takes readers on a kaleidoscopic journey starting from the delta of the Ganga on the Bay of Bengal and extending up to Land’s End at Kanyakumari in the south. The region’s much splendoured history, together with the picturesque landscape of the various places that it traverses, makes it distinctive and unique. This is veritably the sacred coast of this great country, the secular coast of the religious where lie numerous holy places of pilgrimage, belonging to different faiths and being respected equally by all.
Peppered with folktales, myths and anecdotes, the book sweeps the reader along with its accounts of India’s coastline, closely interwoven with the many strands of legends of the country’s hinterland. It has an old-world charm, making it interesting to those who love to travel to lesser known places on India’s eastern coast.
