About the Book

‘India and Faraway Lands’ is a compact yet panoramic exploration of the story of India from a global perspective. Meticulously researched and lucidly told, the book takes the readers on a journey around the world, in reverse chronological order, tracing pivotal events and unravelling intriguing connections with India—starting with the present that is more visible and relatable to the readers and moving towards the past that is relatively lesser known.

Ashutosh Mehndiratta’s retelling of the evolution of the United States, Britain, Ireland, Russia, Germany, Japan, France, Portugal, Central Asia, China, Rome, Persia, and Greece provides a context often missing in conventional histories of India. Along the way are recounted fascinating tales of travellers, the earliest accounts of interaction between the East and the West, forgotten cities that were once glorious, and books that changed the course of history. While there are many excellent works on world history as well as Indian history, there are not many books where the stories of India and the world are juxtaposed. ‘India and Faraway Lands’ aims to fill that gap and will at once inform and entertain the readers.
