Did they design jewellery in Harappa? Was King Ashoka fond of chewing paan? Who played pachisi, chaupar and lam turki? Mulligatawny was a soup, but what was pish pash?
Find the answers to all these weird, impossible questions in this fascinating, quirky book about how people lived in the past. Go time travelling through the alleys of history and take a tour through the various ages from Harappa to the Maurayan, Mughal to the British. Through short snapshots and wacky trivia, this book gives you a glimpse into the vibrant culture of India, as you learn about the life and times of kings, queens, viceroys and even ordinary children! Spend a day with Urpi as she tries selling pottery in exchange for a few beads at Mohen-jo-daro; step back into King Ashoka s kingdom where Madhura prepares to be a warrior; watch Adil harbour hopes of becoming a khansama in British India.
From food fads to fashion, art and craft to entertainment, this book gives funny, freaky information that no textbook ever will. Peppered with Tapas Guha s crazy cartoons, Life in India makes history fun like never before.
