Product description


"Lahiri deserves loud applause for writing this unputdownable book that familiarises the younger generation with various facets of ancient India." - eShe Magazine

"This easy and illuminating read on ancient India is filled with insightful information and interpretations. Lucid and entertaining… Each page exudes the scent of an authoritative historian of ancient India." - Open Magazine

"A volume that brings ancient India to life in the most delightful way, Time Pieces takes its readers on a merry-go-round trip" - Statesman

"Not since A.L. Basham's The Wonder That Was India [has there been] such a stimulatingly lateral effort at historical analysis. Lahiri’s ‘whistle-stop tour’ is devised for our times of low attention spans, yet it remains utterly engrossing, illuminating the basics of Indian ancient history in ten thematic essays based on such fundamentals of human existence as travel, food, hygiene, art, and love." - The Hindu

"The award-winning historian has presented us with her whimsical take on facets of the lives of the early inhabitants in the subcontinent, through clues they have left behind. This one isn’t a guide, as clearly mentioned, but a snippet to satisfy any curiosity you may have about the country’s rich past." - Outlook Traveller
