This book is not just a travelogue explaining in detail the facts and dates of a journey undertaken by the author. It is much more than that. The author’s ecstasy and gratitude to the Almighty when her dream of years finally materialized is clearly visible throughout the book.
The book starts with a ‘Preface’ that expounds not just the history and geography of the place, but also its divinity and the significance attached to it by people of various religions.
After the ‘Introduction’, the matter is given in eleven chapters, describing date-wise her journey from the beginning to the end. All about accommodation, food and other services etc. are given in a most lucid manner.
Photographs of excellent quality are inserted at appropriate places in the book.
At the end, much needed information regarding the Yatra is given in two Annexures.
On the whole, this book will be an inspiration as well as a guide for future pilgrims.
