ALONG THE GANGES


ALONG THE GANGES

ILIJA TROJANOW    Book Number: 87737    Product format: Paperback

Hindu priests regard the River Ganges as a sin to call her a river at all. She is a goddess, the source of the world, her waters holy and healing and still sold to Hindus all over the world. Ilija Trojanow travelled the Ganges from the source where it breaks free from the eternal ice of the glaciers in the Himalayas to the great cities, by boat, bus, and on overcrowded trains. He visited the great Hindu festivals and talked to those who warn of ecological disasters. His colourful report describes a country between ancient traditions and astonishing modernity, and the holy river that crosses it for hundreds of miles. Here it is at its holiest, moodiest, and foulest in a perfect mix of insider and outsider travelling companion. 266pp in softback.
