Read full description of the books:



Rajasthan is an area of northwestern India; in this book, the author, who had recently moved to Rajasthan, writes about her travels through the region.

There are three things Grewal seems particularly interested in:

1) the lifestyles of Rajasthan's various tribes, many of them historically nomadic, and in the early stages of abandoning their traditional ways.
2) visiting the palaces and forts built by the Maharajas; onetime local princelings whose descendants no longer enjoy the power they once did, but still command respect and wield influence. Grewal likes to seek out and meet these descendants.
3) the changing status of women. Some of the upper-class women Grewal meets spent most of their lives in 'purdah' (secluded from contact with the outside world), only emerging fairly recently; this creates an interesting contrast with women from the tribes, some of which have cultures which nurture female liberty to a surprising degree.

Grewal also visits a variety of religious shrines, wildlife reserves, local artisans, and so forth; an impressive range of experience condensed into a fairly small book. Definitely worthwhile for people curious to learn more about the region, or curious to start learning about the differences between India's various provinces.
