Product Description


Written as a travelogue through 25 darghas, temples and shrines, from Kashmir to Kerela, this book explores what draws devotees from different communities to them in common worship. Blending legend, history, ethnography with critical insights, it reveals the deeply humanist vision of the sacred from the boundaries of caste, even as some of them have become embroiled in communal conflicts.

5.0 out of 5 stars An excellent read. 10 Mar. 2016

Format: Paperback
Mr. Sikand writes to represent the underdog, tells history from the perspective of the vanquished. Even if he claims he's not a social activist the pieces give voice to remote unseen fabric of something so Indian. I would be curious about states of similar mazars in countries with muslim majority. An excellent read.
