Book Recommendation: What It Is Like To Go To War – Karl Marlantes

Book Recommendation: The Land of Flying Lamas – Gaurav Punj

It is titillating to read about the unexploited and innocent people of these far-off lands, with the author sharing a brief history of their culture and civilization.

A collection of 9 essays, this 150+ page book is a narrative journalism on coastal India, an overwhelming account of its fishing communities - always the first tribes to encounter and survive the influence of foreign traders and intruders.
