It is very rarely that we get a book which informs, entertains and inspires. Cauvery published by Pratham Books is a delightful, delectable book which does all this and more.
It is the story of the River Cauvery and blends myth, legend, history and nature to create a charming potpourri. The author takes you on an enchanting journey from the origin of the river in the mountains of Kodagu, down to the plains and then hundreds of kilometers across the breadth of India, to the Bay of Bengal.
The book gives the reader a taste of captivating fables, exciting battles, exotic nature, ominous curses and colorful festivals. It has interesting nuggets splashed across its pages each with an informative or motivational message.
The book has been written by Oriole Henry in an engaging style which is more conversational then pedantic. The photographs by Clare Arni are stunning and add value to the text.
Printed on recycled paper using vegetable oil based ink, Cauvery, like the River, offers a feast for the eyes, succor for the soul and stimulation for the mind.
