Land of the Seven Rivers: A Brief History of India's Geography

 
Sanjeev Sanyal (Author)
Synopsis

The book presents a fast-paced account that takes a few high points in Indian history and explores India’s past with those aspects in mind. It shows that the country’s history was shaped by its geographical position: its rivers, cities and mountains. Taking into consideration the country’s archaeological findings, old records and manuscripts, it examines questions like why India is called ‘Bharat’, how the British built the railways across the subcontinent, why was the world’ highest peak named after George Everest, and how did the Europeans map India. It is an attempt to bring out new points and perspectives for consideration vis-à-vis Indian history.
