Description

To most first time visitors, even those from India, Banaras appears ‘chaotic’. Its lanes are tangled and twisted, its logic hidden. Nandini Majumdar grew up in Banaras and that is how the city seemed to her as well. Perhaps that is why she wanted so much to discover Banaras. As you go on one walk after another, armed with this book, you will be...gin to unravel the city’s secrets as the author did. And soon, the city’s tapestry will reveal itself to you in all its rich colour and texture. Walking and wandering is an art, especially in Banaras. Enjoy!
