I bought few books from this author including Hinduism. MOST books were rubbish. POOR grammar and I think this author has no idea what he/ she is talking about. Shallow knowledge.
India is a continent, not just a country, with numerous languages and sites as diverse as the snowy peaks of the Himalayas and the tropical waterways of Kerala in the south, where you can cruise through lush forests on a houseboat photographing rare animals that drink and bathe at the water's edge.
I am beginning to sound like a tour guide, which is not my intention. The point is, India is BIG and the indispensable travelling companion for me is the 'Essential India Travel Guide,' a smart, practical, money-saving manual of insider tips by Shalu Sharma, a woman with the rare distinction of knowing her country as intimately as she knows the pitfalls facing many westerners when they arrive in India for the first time.
With chapters covering the geography, culture, food, the monsoons (always check the season before you go), and dealing with trains, planes, policemen, bureaucracy and beggars, Shalu Sharma pinpoints exactly what you need to know.
I list beggars on the list above and would like to say this. India is principally a Hindu country. Giving alms to beggars acquires the giver good karma and allows the beggar to eat and survive. Some people say it "only encourages them." This is a western concept and unfounded. Begging is an accepted part of the culture. The exchange rate as I am writing is £1 = 94 rupees; $1 = 62 rupees. If you exchange £10 into rupees and give to every beggar who holds out their palm, you will make a lot of people happy, you will accrue some good karma and you will have a much happier stay in India.
This guide is a great place to start researching your trip to India from sights to see, how to keep children occupied, common Hindi phrases etc. Also discussed is the matter of pre-travel checks such as immunisations.
All in all a great guide to India and it has certainly kept my desire to visit the country burning!
