Buddha In Gandhara

 
Sunita Dwivedi (Author)
Synopsis

Buddha in Gandhara is the saga of ancient Buddhist cities of Gandhara—a region that extended from north-western Pakistan to eastern and north-eastern Afghanistan. It tells stories of cities that once dotted the highroad connecting India with Central Asia and China. It traces the network of Asian trade routes that nourished these cities with goods, people and ideas. It also trains the spotlight on the magnificent art of Gandhara that still clings to the ruins of these heritage cities and also those that are showcased in the museums of Asia and Europe.

Sunita Dwivedi

Sunita Dwivedi, born in Kushinagar where the great Buddha attained Mahaparinirvana, is a keen photographer, avid traveler and a journalist by profession, having worked for over fifteen years in several dailies including The Time of India, The Hindustan Times, The Pioneer, Northern Indian Patrika amongst other.  She left a full time job in 1997 to pursue her passion for traveling and photography.  Her dream of following the Buddha has taken her to China, Japan, Taiwan and other places.  A post-graduate in English from Lucknow University, she completed her schooling from St Mary's Convent, Allahabad and graduation and Masters from the Allahabad University.  Since early childhood she was inspired by the Dying Buddha in the Mahaparinirvana temple and the giant mound of the enigmatic Ramabhar stupa that lay just behind her house, to learn about the great Sage and his Path to Salvation.  The lonely, long, arduous and at time hazardous, journey to the Buddhist heritage sites in India took two years to complete.  From Ladakh and Himachal Pradesh in the north to Andhra Pradesh in the south and from Maharashtra in the west to UP and Bihar in the east and Sikkim and Arunachal in the northeast, she has journeyed alone, with no luggage except two cameras and a heavy tripod on foot, in rickshaw, trolley, bus, rail, chopper and plane.  This is her first book.
