Synopsis: Poonam Surie begins her journey with a quest: to understand China and search for its soul. While doing so her personal voyage takes us into the heart of the Middle Kingdom, exploring the beauty of the land whether through a cruise along the Yangtze River, a walk in the amazing Stone Forest in the Yunnan Province, journeying through the deserts of Xinjiang in western China or yet again through Buddhist and Taoist temples into the streets of busy, commercial present day Beijing. In her quest, as the author discovers more about China she finds inextricable links with an important neighbour, India. Sensitively written, the book brings to light the ethos of Chinese society highlighting the realities of life in today s China. Not only is this book a search for historical, personal and societal identities but it also delves into the past, exploring the links between India and China from ancient times to the present, moving across time lines. It sets out to find links from the time of the Silk Road to the Tang Dynasty, to the Cultural Revolution, to the lives of the people she comes into contact with in contemporary China. Her journey delves into the spiritual, in the process bringing out the cultural and historical commonalities and differences between the people of the two countries.

About the Author: An economist by training from the Delhi School of Economics, POONAM SURIE has spent the better part of the last thirty years living across four continents. Her stints in a set of very diverse countries including Tanzania, Belgium, Poland, USA, Bhutan and China have given her a unique perspective and world view . Having met and observed people from various cultures, backgrounds and ethnicities, she has learnt a lot, often sharing this knowledge through her writing. Besides writing, education remains a key area of interest. The author has worked with young children in Thimphu, New York and Beijing. Over the years, Poonam has written for a range of publications including The Times of India, Hindustan Times and The Financial Express. While in Tanzania, as a fellow of the Indian Council of Historical Research, she wrote a research paper on the Indian Diaspora. Her first book Dancing on a Moonbeam reflected some of her life experiences through verse. She now lives with her husband and two daughters in New Delhi.
