Interesting and very well written. I read this after my second reading of "Ocean of Churn" by Sanjeev Sanyal, and it was fascinating to observe differing points of opinion on Aryan invasion theory as well as the the debate on lost Saraswati. The chapters on Jainism, Buddhism, arrival of Bhahmins in South India and their tremendous influence in the form of Shiva and Vishnu devotion are totally fascinating. The pictures only add to the charm and beauty of the book.
Also highly recommend reading both "Ocean of Churn" as well as "Land of Seven Rivers" by Sanjeev Sanyal. Perhaps best to start with Land of Seven Rivers, then move to Ocean of Churn and then to Coromandel.
